As per your question, though, a cookie is a file stored on your PC. Its put there by websites you visit for them to gather information about who visits. It sounds scarier than it is, but basically its how sites remember your password, and, on forums, remember what threads you've read and haven't, etc.

If your paranoid about privacy you can set your browser not to accept cookies, but you'll have an interesting time browsing the web if you do. Deleting your cookies does just that. Wont cause any harm, there'll just be a new one there next time you visit. And if you usually have your password "remembered" by the site, you'll need to re-enter it.

Hope I explained that right.

Thanks Ozzy and yes I knew about cookies but did not know how it affected this forum. No I am not paranoid about them but I do like my privacy just the same but cookies are ok by me.

Thanks again Ozzy.
