You can check before deleting that if it is a cookie

something like

If InStr(CacheFile, "Cookie") = 0 Then

         Call DeleteUrlCacheEntry(CacheFile);
end if

Wow, I see you really did your homework on this one, I will definitely leave full points for both answers.  i just need to know one more thing.  The call to DeleteUrlCacheEntry takes in a System.IntPtr, not a string.  Do you know how I can tell if that pointer points to a string with "Cookie" in it?

Check this

Public Const COOKIE_CACHE_ENTRY As Long = &H100000

if(internetCacheEntry.CacheEntryType & COOKIE_CACHE_ENTRY)
     Console.Out.WriteLine("its a cache entry");
