Cookies get restored - 500points

One of my clients is trying to clean up his profile. He has a roaming profile and running Windows 2000.
After he cleaned the cookies from his Documents and Settings directory (cookies dir), he logged off then logged back on and his cookies were restored. This environment is a NT4 domain.

Any ideas as to why the cookies keep getting restored ?

My point is that even after I delete the cookies and the temp files, and the user logs off, at the next login the cookies that were previously deleted re-appear in the cookies directory.

I am asking whether there is a fix for this issue.

This is another thread open which is similar, user deletes files and they reappear.  They modify OK but don't delete.  A quick fix would be to delete them from the roaming profile folder.

I presume the permissions are OK? Can the user delete them manually from the servers roaming profile?
