The best uninstall program on the site and light years ahead of Windows' own uninstaller. Very useful for people who want to test non-portable software and then remove it fully without any registry cruft to slow down their machine. Easily in my top 5 Windows apps.

Incredibly useful - i used to spend hours going through the reg. searching for *string* in order to completely uninstal. This prg gets everything out.

IECookiesView v1.75 Updated

Checker on 21 Mar 2014
  • 149KB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by AlephX

IECookiesView is a small utility that 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
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch iecv.exe.
What's new?
  • Added limited support for Internet Explorer 10.0. On IE10, the cookies index file (index.dat), which stores information about every cookie file, is no longer used. Instead, the information is stored in .edb database which is locked for reading/writing by another process.
    Due to this change, when reading the cookies of IE10, the upper pane displays only partial information and some of the other features may not work properly.

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

@Kea - Did you check 'Do real clean (simulation otherwise)' lower left corner?

Kea on 2012-11-18 19:08

Yes, I used "Do real clean"...

Midas on 2012-11-19 10:17

Then maybe USBOblivion didn't run with the required privileges: try right click and "Run as administrator"...
