    Under IE6, the option existed to simply clear the temporary internet files,
    allowing cookies containing login information, etc. to be retained. In IE7,
    the only option I can locate appears to want to clear temporary internet
    files and ALL cookies. I reviewed the help files and and previous discussion
    group questions, but can't seem to find any further information. Am I
    missing something? Thanks!

    If you delete the Temporary Internet Files from Internet Options> General>
    Browsing History> Delete> (next screen) Delete files, you will only delete
    the cached files, not cookies.

    Hope this helps,

    in IE6, it was possible to delete cookie by cookie (select / right click /
    in IE7, if you follow "Tools/Internet Options/general" then
    "History/parameters/files", then select a cookie and "right click / delete",
    the cookie, it is NOT deleted.
    BTW, I do not find the file name specified in the header of this panel in my
    PC :
    in my case :
    c:\Documents and Settings\HP_Propriétaire\Local Settings\Temporary Internet
