Almost every website you visit tracks your online activity using cookies on your hard drive. These small cookies can follow you from site to site, track and collate your activity, and compile all of these into a database.
Cookies may store information like login or registration identification, user preferences, and online shopping cart information. The browser saves the information and sends it back to the web server. And then the web server may use the cookie to customize the display that sends to the user, or it may keep track of the different pages within the site that the user accesses and share the data to other online marketers.
Cookies can be hidden everywhere. So you would not want to miss a spot that nurtures them. Here’s the list of what you should clear after browsing the Internet:
->Browsing & Downloading History
->Form & Search History
->Offline Website Data
Many websites take advantage of flash cookies (supercookies, also) that is much harsher than the cookie we talked above. Erasing regular cookies, browsing history, and the cache, or choosing privacy option within the browser will not delete flash cookies. They cannot be deleted by any commercially available anti-spyware or adware removal program. However, if you use the Privacy Protector in Neptune SystemCare Ultimate can help deleting flash cookies.

->Open File Explorer, click the File menu and then choose the Change folder and search options command.
->Find the tab General, check Show recently used files in Quick access and Show frequently used folders in Quick access, and then click Clear.
