C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies and C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies\Low
and that unless you have turned UAC off or Disabled the Protected Mode in IE 7, they (like cache, temp & history) will be stored in the latter folder. I have also written an Article on it on my site at http://www.winvistaclub.com/f24.html (its not yet linked to the main site)
Then why do these folders also still exist ??? C:\Users\username\cookies\ C:\Users\username\cookies\Low
are not really folders. You may see they are with shortcut icons on them. And they were called Junction Points. A junction point is a protected operating system folder that points to another folder. The junction point is an important part of application compatibility and does not contain any data or other files. It is used to redirect legacy programs to the new Vista folders.
By default, a junction point has the following settings after you upgrade Windows XP to Windows Vista:
• The attribute of a junction point is hidden. • The Read permission of a junction point is Deny.
If you change these default settings, the system will become unstable.
Hope it helps.
