How do I protect cookies?

I picked up a product called IDVault.  To function it requires that the sites being accessed must already have cookies set on my HD.  In otter words, I manually access the particular site by manually typing in login data.  After that IDVault will automatically log me in.  The problem is I frequently purge the browser cache, history file, cookies, etc.  And that wipes out the cookies I need for the sites that IDVault uses.  Is there some way to protect those cookies from deletion?  I did use the Manage Sites option to add the site URLs to Always Allow.  My default Privacy settings are to allow first party and exclude third party cookies.  Note that IDVault only uses IE.  While it works under FF (my primary browser) it uses the "open in IE feature of FF.

Related cookie question.  There are cookies stored in the Cookies folder.  And also in the Temporary Internet Folder.  They appear to be from the same site, but with slightly different naming format.  What is the difference?

Thank you
