"Cookies" are files that are downloaded to your hard drive when you
connect to certain Web sites. These files contain your computer
information that the Web site has recorded. When you return to a site
that has loaded a "cookie" on your machine, the site can use your
"cookie" information for various and sundry site documentation purposes.
Internet Explorer has a folder called "Cookies". You can remove them if
it bothers you.
