Using the Auto Tune technology, Security Booster will determine the best set of security options to be applied on your system. However, in the case that you do not like or prefer these settings, you could always go in and configure by yourself the options you wish. You can gain access to all settings and configure your personal security settings from Manual Setting and Options.
Persistent cookies are cookies that "persist" or reside on your system even after you have closed your browser. Such cookies contain information that can be used to personalize your experience for a particular web site the next time you visit it. Examples would be online community and discussion boards. Unfortunately, such information could also be gathered by hackers and malicious programs and disclose your personal information.
Session cookies are cookies that exist only for a particular "session" or logon. These cookies are deleted automatically the moment you close your browser or choose logout/exit from the web site. Examples would be online banking services. Such cookies are usually safe as they are automatically deleted from your system the moment you exit from the sites.
Persistent and session cookies differ as their life span and lifetime are different.
Under normal situations, Security Booster will delete and clear all items/files from the Internet Explorer History and Temporary Files folder list. However, several items/files from these cache are very closely tied in to your operating system and deleting such files could cause other problems. As such Security Booster will not delete these files to preserve system integrity and stability. These files are probably needed and linked to other programs that are using it regularly such as Internet Explorer and Microsoft Outlook for instance.
If you could not remember or can not locate the folder where you saved the installation file:
