Whats the correct method to destroy a cookie?
Lets say I set a cookie ( response.cookies("err_bit")="No User Found") when a page loads, read its data and I want it destroyed soon afterthat.
How do I do this? What the right way to do this?

jay_gadhavi's answer appears to be ASP.Net, which is why you are getting the error in ASP.

There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with gawai's answer, though.
