Clearing Cookies and Cache
1. CCleaner & White-listing your sites
2. Clear a single browser
3. Extensions for Chrome and FirefoxProbably the most important thing to do when using sites like swagbucks, gifthulk, et al, is to clear cookies and cache often, meaning several times a day!! This will keep offers crediting and activities working properly. It does not mean that after clearing you can do the exact same offer (on the same site, on the same wall) again once its credited you, but may allow you to do a similar offer on a different wall (with fresh email of course) Remember too that things like Encraves and Jun Videos put a lot of junk in your trunk, so clean it up Please also read our forum post for mobile devices
- CCleaner is a fabulous program that will clear your cookies and cache from all browsers at once. It requires you to close the browsers you want to clean, and will ask you if you want to close a browser if you happen to have one open. You can download CCleaner from its website here: https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner
To clear cookies and cache: select the icon that says "Cleaner" then click the "Run Cleaner" button. You do not need to mess with any of the check marks in the menu on the left, it has already selected the best options for you. When it asks you if you are sure you want to proceed, click OK.
Running CCleaner will log you out of any sites unless you white-list them. First, log in to any sites you want to white-list. Besure to click the "Remember me" box if there is one. Next, open CCleaner and click the "Options" icon then the "cookies" button. Use the search in the left "cookies to delete" column, or scroll down and find the sites you want to white list. Click them to highlight and move to the right "cookies to keep" column by clicking the arrow in the center. Thats it! Easy! CCleaner will save this info for every time you use it, so you do not need to white list every time. You can now run CCleaner by following the instructions above.
You may also want to run the Registry cleaner. Click the Registry icon, then "scan for issues" and let it run, it will list any found issues, then click "fix selected issues", it will then pop up a box, just click "fix all". Easy. Cleaning the registry will help keep your computer running smoothly.
2. Clear a Single Browser
- This is a decent option if you just need to clear a single browser when other browsers are busy, say with Encraves
and Jun Videos
. Easiest way to do this is CTRL+SHIFT+DEL in the browser you want to clear. If on a Mac, then COMMAND+SHIFT+DEL. This will log you out of any sites (unless you have a white list extension, below), so remember to log back in. Be sure the following boxes are checked.
3. Selective Cookie and Cache Delete Extensions
- These extensions dont work particularly well, but you can try them if you like. Remember that extensions may slow down your browser.
