Something is deleting my cookies

    General discussion

  • I have IE8.  I also have MS Security Essentials and PC Tools Reg Mech  and Malwarebytes.  Infrequently, something deletes the cookies to my bank and the sites where I pay bills online.  A related topic for onecare was listed when I typed the title to  this question.  I'm pretty sure I've never run onecare on this new computer that I got a few months ago.  It occurred on my previous computer as well.  When I clean up browser history and temp files, I always tell it to leave the cookies alone.  I'm trying to figure out if the security essentials is doing this and, if so, what I can do to prevent it from happenning.  I don't see a match in the forum categories, so I'm going with OneCare-Off Topic.
