    In trying to deal with my wife's flaky G4 I've migrated her to a clean user account. I got everything she really needed moved across, EXCEPT IE's cookies. Safari's cookies moved fine, but she's demanding her IE cookies too.

    I've tried doing things in IE that I know generate new cookies, verified they were there, quit, and searched for visible and invisible files modified today, sorted by date so I could see what got modified in the last couple of minutes. None of these files, when copied to a different disk and deleted from the original, make IE show no cookies on restart, so I'm assuming they aren't it.

    Where is IE hiding the cookies!
