HELLO I apologize if this question ius in the wrong area I’m new here and have no clue how this works quite yet and know NOTHING about computers.

Basically I think I want to delete cookies so everytime I open the firefox browsers it will be free of all cookies or at least the cookies for 1 oarticular site.

I have a 2006 dell with windows xp and firefox version 5.0 and ie maybe 7.0?

I don’t think I can download anything because I still have to do some cleaning due to a previous zeroaccessrootkit virus. Most of it is gone but not all.

I want the computer to work like a library computer or kinko’s I guess.

Can I make the cookies disappear when I reopen the browser or do I have to turn off the computer every time.

I looked for the info online and found delete instructions for every firefox version EXCEPT 5.0.

PS- ie loads very slowly any ideas?

Hi. :)

It would appear you are currently being assisted here for this machine. So my friendly advice is ask your current helper about such as creating a separate topic for the same machine/problems in this part of the forum is counter productive all told, thank you.

However, if in the event this is a different machine to the one I mentioned, merely contact myself(send a PM/private message) and I will gladly re-open this topic for you.
