Trying to find new Freeware Cookie Management Program

Hi. I have been using IE Privacy Keeper for a couple of years now and it hasn't been updated since 2005. It was integrated to IE and Firefox so that when I closed either program, it would flush out the cookies and temporary internet files with a "secure" delete. I really like this program, but I don't think it's working with IE7 and Firefox as well since I'm noticing previous log in status when I restart IE7 or Firefox. Thus, I'm looking for a new program that does the same function. I have CrapCleaner which does almost everything that IE Privacy Keeper does, but I'm wondering if anyone knew of a freeware real time cookie manager program? I would like to be able to have the program clear any new cookies and temporary internet files when I leave a website while being able to keep the cookies I want. Thanks.

Cookies are useful, they do no damage to a computer.
Temporary Internet files also do no damage to a computer.

Anyway, both IE7 and Firefox have built-in cookie support, if you must get rid of them.
In IE7, go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Delete button under Browsing History.
In Firefox 2, go to Tools -> Privacy -> the Private Data section.
