Try this: Persistent cookies are stored in different places on your system depending on
which web browser and browser version you are using. Netscape stores all its
persistent cookies in a single file named cookies.txt on the PC or magiccookie
on the Macintosh. Both files are in the Netscape directory. You can open and
edit this file with a text editor and delete any cookies that you don't want
to keep or delete the file itself to get rid of all of your cookies.

Internet Explorer stores persistent cookies in separate files named with the
user's name and the domain name of the site that sent the cookie. For example:
yourname@ciac.txt. The cookie files are stored in /Windows/cookies or in
/Windows/profiles//cookies directories, where is replaced
with the user's login name. If your operating system directory is not named
Windows (such as Winnt for Windows NT) then look in that directory instead of
the Windows directory. You can delete any of these files you do not want to
keep.

You can open these files to see where they came from and what information they
contain. For example, the following are the contents of an Internet Explorer
cookie file

On second thought, the easiest way is start>run type cookies in the box and go. Need to get some thing like bleep cleaner to monitor them for you. Then you can save the ones you want to keep.

If you were typing the full name of CCleaner it was Big Brother enforcing the site rules on profanity. You type c-r-a-p and it replaces it with 'bleep'.

Mozilla has a cookie manager that allows you see all your cookies and delete those you don't want, FF also will allow you to browse and delete them. Once you delete cookies in ANY browser, the chances you can retrieve them are very slim, especially after a couple of days.
Or are you talking about your history, that is, the list of recently viewed webpages; again, once these are deleted, they are very hard to retrieve.

SUPPOSINGGGG that you didn't set up recycle bin NOT to send to recycle but rather delete,no save,look in recycle bin.

start
my computer
local disk [c:]
documents & settings
your username
cookies

now,when you get to cookies,BEFORE you open that folder,right click,select send to and send to desktop.
next time you're looking up cookies,it'll bbe right at your fingertips.

another neat trick is to right click the icon and select send to,send to my documents.
using a program like webkey
http://browseraddons.friendpages.com
you can assign cookies to a hotkey combo like alt + c [as i have].
then delete the desktop shortcut since you no longer nered it [same for any desktop shortcut].
i have just about everything assigned to hotkeys.
