I've been using CCleaner to save specific cookies while clearing out all the rest. But CCleander does nothing to clear flash cookies. In lieu of tedious, manual cleaning... is there something similar to CCleaner that will also clear out flash cookies?

To set CCleaner to clean Adobe Flash Cookies:
In CCleaner, click the Cleaner icon and then the Applications tab.
Under Multimedia, select Adobe Flash Player.

Gentlemen:

Thank you for your quick responses. I don't have Adobe Flash app installed -- so that is not listed under CCleaner -> Applications -> Multimedia. I do, however, have the Adobe Flash Player plug-in under my Google Chrome Browser:

Google Chrome Browser - Version 24.0.1312.57 m
Adobe Flash Player (Chrome plug-in) - Version 11.5.31.139
CCleaner - Version 3.27.1900 64-bit

Edit: never used this, because never had your problem. WOT is good. Try if you think it might help.

Thanks, warlock, the CNet link looks promising.

Alas, promising, but no cigar. Like CCleaner, Flash Cookie Remover assumes installation of Macromedia or Adobe Flash -- it can neither see nor delete flash cookies used by Google Chrome's Adobe Flash plug-in.

Warlock (or others who might use Google Chrome browser) -- after you do a cookie clean with CCleaner (or whichever app you use to clean out cookies) -- can you go into your Chrome settings -- and see if there are still flash cookies left? My suspicion is that the Google browser keeps those flash cookies safe from 'conventional' cookie cleaners.
