Tips & Warnings
- When you need more answers about how to manage cookies with Internet Explorer, take a trip to the Internet Explorer FAQs page (see Resources below).
- Enjoy heightened online privacy with Internet Explorer's spyware blocker. Unlike cookies, spyware attaches itself to your computer to spy on your online activities for shady purposes. Internet Explorer automatically blocks spyware from hitching a ride on your hard drive.
- If you want to use Internet Explorer, you're going to need at least 64 MB of memory. If you have less than that, you must install more or Internet Explorer will not run.
- Instructions for how to manage cookies with Internet Explorer were prepared using Internet Explorer 7.0. Older versions of the program may work differently and not be compatible with the steps below.
