It is certainly possible to delete any cookie, or are you asking about deleting pictures downloaded from the web?
What browser are you using?

If you are downloading screen savers and such, that is one of the main ways that malware gets on your computer. Always scan the files you download with your antivirus and antispyware before installing.

If you use IE, downloaded pictures are stored in two areas: temporary internet files, AND in the folder you designated. You may wish to use Windows Disk Cleanup on a regular basis to delete the temporary files.

For a general clean-up, when you're through for the day, delete your cookies, temporary files, and history:
Open IE.
Click Tools.
Select Internet Options.
Click the General tab.
Click the Delete Files button.
When the box opens, put a check in Delete All Offline Content.
Click OK.
Click Delete Cookies.
Click OK.
Click Clear History.
Click Yes.
