Click on TOOLS on your toolbar, then click on INTERNET OPTIONS, then DELETE under BROWSING HISTORY.

From there you can chose to delete several things, including the COOKIES. Deleting the TEMPORARY INTERNET FILES every now and then also helps to free up some space.

If you still have a persistent one you can't get rid of, try this free download

Be aware though that most cookies are actually useful and are not intended to be malicious like data miners and are not generally a nuisance like pop ups.

Yes that is true cookies can be good but tracking cookies are designed to save a list of a detail e.g. how many times you've visited there website and email addresses which can be a problem if you have spyware too as the spyware could record your email and spam you. I personally use Ccleaner work great for me. I also find deleting them every so often speeds up your pc :)

You don't need to install aditional software to eliminate cookies, you do that in your browser preferences.
