You will always get some cookies, and other files, that come back straight after clearing them.
It's just the way a computer works. (Especially if you have your browser synced).

Using the apps/extensions given above will stop some of the cookies getting there in the first place.

We often get asked the same question on the CCleaner forum, so I wrote an explanation of why it happens and what you can so about some of it.
See the second and third parts of this - "Windows files that re-appear straight after cleaning:" and "Cookies (Tracking Cookies) and other files that can reappear straight after cleaning:"
