An odd thing happened after I cleared my browser cache: YouTube still counted me as logged into my account. I refreshed the page, cleared the cache again, even went to the Macromedia Settings panel to see that supercookies were turned off, but the result was the same - nothing could erase the cookie that kept me signed into YouTube.|
Yeah, I ended up just signing out, but there's still an apparently unkillable cookie on my hard drive. I tried to access the Cookies folder directly, but Vista (and, no, I can't change the OS on this machine; it's not mine) won't let me, even logged in as an Administrator. I've run CCleaner, but it gave no details as to what it erased, so I've no idea if it helped.
How is YouTube still identifying my account - IP? Cookie in a hidden folder?
