Flash cookies, aka "super cookies," can be used to track your browsing just like normal browser cookies. But Flash cookies will stick around even if you delete your regular browser cookies, and they can't normally be viewed.

The FlashCookiesView tool shines a light on these out-of-the-way files. The super cookies, known technically as local shared objects or LSOs, do have legit uses, such as saving your preferences for watching Flash videos on a particular site.

But online marketers discovered that the cookies can also be used to effectively track you from site to site. The small files sit tucked away in a Documents and Settings folder, and can't normally be read clearly because they're in binary format. For more details on super cookies and how to foil them, see "Are Flash Cookies Devouring Your Privacy?"
