os = windows xp (home, sp3)
Periodically I start the computer in safe mode logging in as the adminstrator and also as the user. I allow hidden files to be seen and then manually clear out all my cookies, temp and temp internet files. However there are some cookies that refuse to go. Typically they are from SB Nation, a sports blogger community. It's a legit site but wanted to know if there is a vulnerablity or why these cookies won't delete. And I don't get the "could not delete because other program is using ...blah,blah,blah" message.

What do you mean by manually? You select cookies files in delete them? Well some cookies are persistent and cannot be deleted this way.

The correct way to delete cookies : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/278835/EN-US/
The correct way to clear cache : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/278835/EN-US/

A very good freeware you would like for your tasks : http://www.ccleaner.com/
