How to remove useless, expired cookies from Internet Explorer?

Unlike other browsers, Internet Explorer stores cookies in different files on your hard disk. There is no option provided on Internet Explorer to remove expired cookies from your computer. It left behind traces even if the cookies are expired and will be never used. The result is that your hard drive stores several hundreds or even thousands unused and useless files.

Expired Cookies Cleaner is a tiny (27Kb zip) portable software that scans your computer and removes expired cookie files. Thus it speeds up your PC and free up some disk space (especially on FAT32 file systems).

Expired Cookie Cleaner can also optimize the files that stores cookies by removing useless cookies from it. One file may contain more than one cookie. If some cookies from this file are expired, then the program deletes those cookies from that file and reports the file as optimized.

The program is compatible with Windows 98/2000/XP and Vista and supports Internet Explorer 4 and above.[Via]
