It can be done using JQuery. Take a look here
You can delete cookies using javascript. And if you attach this to the browser close event, it will work.

<body onunload="deleteAllCookies()">

function deleteAllCookies() {
    var cookies = document.cookie.split(";");

    for (var i = 0; i < cookies.length; i++) {
        var cookie = cookies[i];
        var eqPos = cookie.indexOf("=");
        var name = eqPos > -1 ? cookie.substr(0, eqPos) : cookie;
        document.cookie = name + "=;expires=Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT";

This will clear all cookies onUnload, but cookies should be set using http-only. (read about xss and securing cookies : Protecting Your Cookies: HttpOnly[^])

And if your cookies are well protected, they can't be deleted using javascript.

A solution is to create a javascript function which call an aspx-page which clear the session and remove all cookies.

window.onbeforeunload = function(){
   $.get('removeSession.aspx', function() {
      // all good

In your removeSession.aspx you can do your stuff in page_load

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    foreach (string cookie in Request.Cookies)
        Response.Cookies[cookie].Expires = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-1);
