"Flash Cookies", also known as Local Storage Objects, or LSOs, are similar to browser cookies, however they are created and managed by Adobe Flash. Recently, Adobe has updated Flash to integrate with Internet Explorer's Delete Browsing History feature so that these cookies are easier for users to manage. If you click Tools->Safety->Delete Browsing History, and then delete your cookies, your Flash Cookies will automatically be deleted for you.
