    So if anyone has a better idea where this should go, or wants to move it, please feel free. I wasn't sure what section I should throw this in, so I just chose here to play it safe. Anyway, just about anyone that's worked with Google, Facebook, or any number of other sites have probably heard the term .sol cookies, or flash cookies. You have to remove them manually and if you've ever wondered how the hell some website knew it was you, even though you cleared cookies and used a proxy, this was probably the reason. Typically in order to remove them you'd have to navigate to C:\UserName\Cash\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects and C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\macromedia.com\support\flashplayer\sys and empty them out. It's not rocket science, but I'm sure there's plenty of people who aren't aware of that.

    There's a fairly easy way to do it that I just came across that I figured I'd share it here. http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager07.html is a way to do it w/o having to dig through 15 folders. Nothing too special, but maybe it helps, or saves someone some time. Have a good day everyone.

    iirc ccleaner can wipe .sol's, and can be scripted (ran from cmd line with options etc)

    What'd be really sweet is if there was an efficient way to remove the "Evercookie". I didn't think ccleaner removed flash cookies, dunno why since I've never used it, but I could've swore I read somewhere on here actually that it didn't remove them. Good to know for the future though in case I do need to use it, thank you.
