    Here is what a couple of evercookies look like in Sandboxie using windows explorer. Running ie8 (not fully patched) on wxp home sp3. There are more, these are just examples. Used PEEK by Martin Lubich to view the cookies. When the sandbox is deleted they go away, afaik.

    Use Better Privacy and they go away. No need for Sandboxie and the headaches of using Sandboxie.

    Right. Thanks. Great addon, I would use it with Firefox.
    The reason for that post was to show a bit about what an evercookie looks like after it is baked. :D
    Sandboxie just makes that easier since the hidden files are not so hidden. And it forces cookies et al. into the sandbox, even (so far) the "zero Day" evercookies. At least it has done so here.
