Hi

I have a network with a server 2008 R2 domain controller and clients running Windows 7 Pro 64bit.

All clients use either ie8 or ie9.

Is there a simple way to delete all cookies and if possible temporary internet files(although not 100% necessary) after either closing the browser or logging out.

thanks

There is software called CCleaner.
This allows the automatic deletion of both Cookies and Temporary Files.

I believe it can be located here > www.ccleaner.com

I guess best way then, would be to create a batch file with following commands.

@ECHO OFF
ECHO Deleting current user's Temporary Files, Cookies, History, Form Data and Stored Passwords
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 1
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 2
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 8
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 16
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 32
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 255
ECHO Done!

You can then incorporate this into a logoff script, and assign it to users by using Group Policy.

User Configuration>Windows Settings>Scripts (Logon/Logoff) > Logoff (better)

When user log off, all files are deleted.
