If you have to go the manual route

(at least for Windows/IE users)

"C:\Documents and Settings\----\Cookies\-----@www.brianenos[1].txt"

where '----' is your login name.

Just search for *enos* under \Documents and Settings\ , and delete that file

Please start a new thread with specific details if you're having logging in, cookie, or cache related problems. And please also post if you have deleted brianenos.com cookies and cleared the cache from your web browser. (Including which browser and operating system you're using.)

Thank you,
