Would you mind posting this one to the list. I've been thinking about
doing something like this but I just haven't gotten around to it. I use
Internet Junkbuster which prevents all unapproved cookies from ever being
placed on my computer, but there are still a few that I'd like to get rid
of at the end of each day for security purposes.

One idea I've had is to take the cookies I want to keep and encrypt them
somehow at the end of the day, and at the same time delete them from the
cookies folder on Windows, thus preventing anyone using my computer to
access password protected web sites that I have an account with. Then I
could have another program that asked for a password before restoring the
cookies. Just a few thoughts,
