    All of these files can be safely deleted. Deleting your Temp internet files will not delete your cookies.

    If you know which cookies are the ones you wish to save just cut and paste them elsewhere until the clean-up is done and then cut and paste them back to the cookies folder.

    As far as PCHeath Temp files there should be no problem in deleting them if your system is space critical.

    I would just navigate too the C:\Windows\Cookies folder using windows explorer and locate the cookie that has the identification for the site. Make sure your view in folders is set to detail. Here is an example of TSG's cookie.
