Is it bad to clear your cookies too often?
Does it do damage?

None whatsoever. If you want, you can adjust the setting in your browser to clear cookies every time you close the browser

Keep in mind there are cookies you may want to keep especially for sites that require passwords like Bleeping Computer, internet banking etc. I use CCleaner to automtically clean out cookies, junk files and the recycle bin each time I boot up. It allows me to save cookies I want to keep. But don't use CCleaner's registry cleaner.


The website has a very good tutorial so make sure you check it out.

I use and recommend CCleaner http://www.ccleaner.com/
I agree with frankp316 stay away from the registry cleaner both of CCleaner or any other registry cleaning software - not a good idea in my opinion. People have used registry cleaners and their systems were hosed.
