Hi, my name is Dave Andrews. Today I'm going to show you how to clean the cookies off of a computer. Let's go to our computer. Now the cookies are files that get stored on your computer as you're browsing the Internet. It's basically little settings or anything that you've typed into web forms that might be saved as a cookie. Let's click on your "Start" button and let's go to the Internet. Now, inside of your web browser, the very first thing that we want to do to clear out the cookies is click on "Tools" which is over here on the right. And then come down to "Internet Options" which is the very bottom selection. Now in the middle area here you're going to see an area called the "Browsing History". Under this little subsection let's click on "Delete". Now in the center here we have the option to "Delete Cookies". This will actually clear all the cookies out of our browser simply by clicking this button. It's going to confirm that I want to delete those cookies, I'm just going to say "Yes". It's now deleting all of the cookies that have been stored in my web browser and it goes away when it's completed and you can just click "Close" and "OK" and all of your cookies have been deleted. My name is Dave Andrews, and I've just shown you how to clear the cookies off of a computer.
