Cookies can either be helpful or harmful--helpful when they let you customize your use of Web sites, and harmful when they track your surfing activity. PurgeIE lets you keep certain cookies, while deleting others. But it only goes partway in helping you do that. You select which cookies to keep, but the program offers no help in telling you which may be harmful, and which are helpful. You'll have to try and figure that out on your own.

Given that drawback, is it worth paying money for this program? For many people, the answer may well be no, but as always, your mileage may vary.
