Nopes, not bookmarked for sure.
My Preferences set up:
Privacy> Block Cookies>From Third Party and Advertisers
Yet, everytime I check the privacy setting, I find 10-50 Cookies from advertisements and sites I haven't been to.
In all, there is no "privacy" set up that works!!!
In windows, you can delete these stubborn "sticky" websites through Registery Edit. Any similar things in MBA?

1. Reset Safari (assuming this is your browser). (Safari / Reset)
2. If that does not work, create a new user (Apple Menu / System Preferences / Users and Groups - click on the lock, authenticate and click on the + ). Log in as the new user. Is the problem still there?

Yes, I did. The cookies keeps coming, new ones!
I wonder if the preferences are realy working?
But back to the origional question, how to clear the cache, something like Regedit in windows?

Yes Dominic, it is true, many linked with msn.
I log off, delete history, reset safari, remove cookies, tick private browsing & block third party cookies. Log on again, and the cookies start appearing while still on the home-page.

"Do not track me" is simply a request. Web sites may not honor it.
As far as cookies are concerned, we have little control over it.
Some of these are hard wired to the browser and search engine themself.
Nothing is anonymous anymore in the web.
