    Does Windows Defender remove tracking cookies?


    My Norton Lifelock removes tracking cookies periodically. I'm seriously thinking of ditching Norton in favor of Defender, but I need a way to automatically identify tracking cookies so I can remove them.

    Does Windows Defender remove tracking cookies?

    I don't think Defender deals with cookies, but I use Bitdefender Internet Security which takes command from Defender, so I'm not sure.

    I don't know about automatically, but CCleaner can remove cookies (with the option to save some that you want).
    And every browser I've ever seen has a one click method for clearing the cache and removing cookies.

    Windows Defender 10 Tracking Cookies

    Does Defender for Windows 10 remove unwanted tracking cookies. Some other anti-virus software plainly show you if it has removed any. I believe the tracking cookies sound like orphan cleanup, double click, and a lot of other funny names.
