I am running Citrix Metaframe XP and have several user profiles under several servers. Most of the time cookies folder in those profiles increases to 20mb size. Is there a way to automatically delete these cookies either when session is disconnected or after certain number of days

You can apply the following script created by DarkoLord another EE member, apply it to computer settings and logoff scripts after copying it to a file.


@ECHO OFF
SET SRC1=C:\Documents and Settings
SET SRC2=Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5
SET SRC3=Local Settings\History
SET SRC4=Local Settings\Temp
SET SRC5=Recent
echo About to delete files from Internet Explorer "Temporary Internet files"
FOR /D %%X IN ("%SRC1%\*") DO FOR /D %%Y IN ("%%X\%SRC2%\*.*") DO RMDIR /S /Q "%%Y"
echo About to delete files from Internet Explorer "History"
FOR /D %%X IN ("%SRC1%\*") DO FOR /D %%Y IN ("%%X\%SRC3%\*.*") DO RMDIR /S /Q "%%Y"
FOR /D %%X IN ("%SRC1%\*") DO FOR  %%Y IN ("%%X\%SRC3%\*.*") DO DEL /F /S /Q "%%Y"
echo About to delete files from "Local settings\temp"
FOR /D %%X IN ("%SRC1%\*") DO FOR /D %%Y IN ("%%X\%SRC4%\*.*") DO RMDIR  /S /Q "%%Y"
FOR /D %%X IN ("%SRC1%\*") DO FOR  %%Y IN ("%%X\%SRC4%\*.*") DO DEL /F /S /Q "%%Y"
echo About to delete files from "Recent" i.e. what appears in Start/Documents/My Documents
FOR /D %%X IN ("%SRC1%\*") DO FOR  %%Y IN ("%%X\%SRC5%\*.lnk") DO DEL /F /S /Q "%%Y"
echo About to delete files from "Windows\Temp"
cd /d %SystemRoot%\temp
del /F /Q *.*
@echo Y|RD /S ""
exit

Add the line in then :

SET SRC6=Local Settings\cookies

and

FOR /D %%X IN ("%SRC1%\*") DO FOR  %%Y IN ("%%X\%SRC6%\*.lnk") DO DEL /F /S /Q "%%Y"

In the respective areas..
