IECookiesView v1.77

Checker on 19 Jul 2014

IECookiesView displays the details of all cookies that Internet Explorer stores on your computer, view and search through them, deleting the unwanted cookies etc.

Category:
System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Windows registry. I am accepting this as portable because it can be used to quickly locate and remove unwanted cookies in a crunch. Be warned that all UI settings are written to the registry, so any UI configuration you make is reset when you run the app on a different machine.
Stealth: ? No

How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch iecv.exe.
What's new?
  • Fixed issue: IECookiesView displayed the date/time values of IE10/IE11 in GMT instead of local time.
  • Fixed to display date/time values according to daylight saving time settings.

Now this great little utility saves it's settings in the local folder making it totally portable. THANK YOU, Nir !

1.71 works for ie7 (even though nirsoft does not claim it) it also works for vista (with the caveat that you cannot get rid of the signature warning even if you unblock in the file properties) 1.70 Works with Vista/ie7/portably but does write some items to registry

I just found this article explaining that evercookies can be stored to up to eight different places on the user's computer.

Does FlashCookiesView clean them all?
