EDIT:

I notice you said login so here is how to add a script to logon/logoff

1.) Start, Run, gpedit.msc
2.) Select USER Configuration, Windows Settings, Scripts (Login/Logoff)
3.) Double Click Logon or Logoff Whatever You Want*
4.) Click Add, and browse to the script.
5.) Click OK, and OK again.
6.) Close Group Policy and Restart Computer.
7.) The script should now be run on Logon or Logoff (Depending on what you selected).

Well, the script does what it is suppose to do however those cookies you see that are not being deleted is likely because they are locked (i.e you could likely delete them from the admin account).  The way I see it you can try two things:

1) Upgrade to Internet Explorer 7 and use the 'Empty Temporary Internet Files when Browser is closed" option

or..

2.) Run a disk cleanup at each log off
a) On the PC go Start > Run > Type  > REGEDIT /S cleanmgr.reg <
b) Next type > CLEANMGR /Sageset:1  < Check the boxes for what you want cleaned This sets your options for the following command
c) Create a .bat file with the line > CLEANMGR /sagerun:1 <
d) save it somewhere on the hard drive and add it to the shutdown scripts


To add a batch file to the shutdown scripts do the following:
1.) Start, Run, gpedit.msc
2.) Select Computer Configuration, Windows Settings, Scripts (Startup/Shutdown)
3.) Double Click Shutdown
4.) Click Add, and browse to the script.
5.) Click OK, and OK again.
6.) Close Group Policy and Restart Computer.
7.) The script should now be run on shutdown.

Let me know !
