The deletion process can be completed within a few minutes.
Open the Internet Explorer application on your computer.
Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Safety." Select the "Delete Browsing History" option.
Check the box next to the "Cookies" option. Click the "Delete" button to permanently erase the cookies from your computer.
