I wrote a VBscript a bit back that uses environment variables to hit the cookies path to clean it which might be friendlier in certain circumstances, however is a bit more complex than using the FOR command. It's here if you're interested: http://danstechnotes.blogspot.com/2008/04/delete-cookies-script.html I run it at log off. The catch with profile bloat is that if you're hand-rolling it you have to also be aware of flash cookies, java cruft, the recent items folder, and various other pieces...

One of the things we've seen is IE cookie bloat, sometimes there are 10's of thousands of cookies in a profile if its been around for a while. I've thought about running ccleaner at logoff, but that deletes all cookies, is anyone running a script or software to deleted only cookies older than let's say 90 days?
