var d = new Date();
var nextMillenium = d.setFullYear(d.getYear() + 1000);
Response.Cookies('myCookie').Expires = nextMillenium;

OK, it doesn't last "Forever", but who'd going to know?? :-)

Here you are:

if (getCookie(NameOfCookie)) {
  document.cookie = NameOfCookie + "=" + "; expires=Thu, 01-Jan-70 00:00:01 GMT";
}
}

By the time it's 1970 again... If there not manually deleted !
