You will be presented with the "Select Cookies" dialog.
Place a checkmark next to, or select, the cookies you wish to keep. When you are done, click on OK.
Repeat the above process for each browser you wish to clean cookies in. You will need to select the browser in the "Select Browser for Cleaning" window then click on the "Select Cookies to Keep" button.
If you would like to enable cleaning operations from other features in the wizard you may do so. When you are finished configuring the wizard, click Finish.
Note: Because of the powerful nature of UltraSentry, it is always a good idea to double check the additional options in the wizard. This will ensure that you don't inadvertantly enable an option you didn't intend to.
After clicking finish, you will choose whether to run, save, or schedule the profile. If you wish to continue using the cookie cleaning options, click on Save to save the configuration.
