Hello,
I did a code to delete my cookie file from the Temporary Internet files but its not working and going out of the foreach loop. The code is
C#
var path = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.InternetCache);
foreach (FileInfo fileInfo in directoryInfo.GetFiles("Cookie:abc.xyz@dev.livestuff.com/.txt"))
{
   fileInfo.Delete();
}

Now what I have to do to delete my cookie file ?

The cookies are created by the above domain and I want to delete it with my IE addon which is created for it .

what is your project type? web application or winform with web browser control etc.. please explain.

My project type is winform and I am using web browser control to call the above URL with iframe.

You can't.

There are all sorts of reasons, starting with:
1) Cookies are stored on the client, not the server, so you can't access them with C# code anyway except via the Cookies class.
2) They aren't stored in the same place by all browsers anyway: Chrome for example uses an SQLite database instead of individual files, and holds the DB open and locked while it is running, so you can't even access it directly without closing the browser.

Use the "normal" interface to remove cookies:
C#
if (Request.Cookies["UserId"] != null)
{
    Response.Cookies["UserId"].Expires = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-1);
}
Will direct the browser to remove it. What the browser actually does as a result though, it not defined...

I have seen all the urls as you sent, but it will delete all the files. I want to delete only my file.
