Came across this little flash cookie cleaner a few days ago ... I know that CCleaner and other programs will also clean flash cookies but I like this one since it's a very small and quick cleaner. You can easily check while browsing for any flash cookies and delete them in a second and keep browsing or you can check web sites to see if they are adding flash cookies ... a lot quicker than going to the flash cookie folder to see what's there. It lists "Windows All" but I can't be sure ... it works OK with XP ... no install, just download and use.
Flash Cookies Cleaner 1.2
Removes every Flash Cookie from your system.
Flash Cookies Cleaner is a compact application designed to scan your computer for the cookies saved by the Adobe Flash Player application in order to remove them. These cookies, also known as Local Shared Objects, are responsible for remembering the volume level on Flash video players and other settings for each website.
If you are not comfortable with having these settings saved on your computer you might want to delete them. The problem is that these cookies are not removed in the same way you clean the cookies saved by your browser. Actually, completely cleaning the browser has no effect on these items.
Since every Flask cookie can save up to 100 kilobytes of information, the space used for an intensive Internet user can be quite significant. It is recommended to remove them if you want to clean your hard drive and to avoid the privacy issues.
The application has an easy to use interface that allows you to detect and to delete all the cookies with a couple of clicks. You can also review the detected items before deciding to delete them. Unfortunately, you cannot select the items that you want to remove since the app deletes all the detected cookies.
It has a small footprint and barely uses the CPU even when scanning or deleting cookies. The response time is above average since in our tests it detected and removed over eight hundred entries almost instantly.
This app detected more items than the Adobe Website Storage Settings panel and removed them with no problems. However, it lacks the ability to change the maximum disk space for each cookie and to disable the local storage.
Flash Cookies Cleaner is a useful application for the users that want to completely remove the browsing traces from their computer with minimum effort.
... just to add, I run CCleaner frequently when I have the computer on but I never paid too much attention to flash cookies till I started reading more about them in the last month or so and this little cleaner lets me actually see what has been added to the Adobe folder while browsing. I'm not 100% sure CCleaner removes "all" flash cookies, it very well may ... when I have run CCleaner I think there still might have been a folder or something in that Adobe - Macromedia folder but this cleaner seems to remove everything and it's very quick. I have to recheck CCleaner again on removing flash cookies.
