Default Questions about flash cookies

Hi.

I have a few questions about flash cookies.

1 - Does Ccleaner remove flash cookies?
2 - If I get a flash cookie while browsing using sandboxie and then delete the contents of the sandbox, does that remove the flash cookie?
3 - If my computer has flash cookies and I then uninstall flash player does that remove the cookies?

I hope someone can help. Thanks.

All I know is that you have to be really careful with them, because it you bite them just wrong they can blow up in your face and get chocolate chunks all over the place.

Sorry I could not help it.... I am in kind of a mood today.

If you use Sandboxie, Flash cookies will be deleted, I have never seen one
in my computer. Since they really worry you, install SUPERAntispyware, it
will detect and eliminate Flash cookies. After you run SUPERAntispyware,
if you use Sandboxie 100% of the time, you ll never see another Flash
cookie again, guaranteed.
