    Default Deleting Files in Content.IE5

    I have over 300 MB's I the content.IE5 folder (normally invisible). Can I
    just manually delete the files in this folder? What purpose do they serve?

    Thanks,

    Oreally

    One, why are you still using IE5? Have you started using fire yet? You own a
    couple fo wheels by now I hope.

    Start IE, click TOOLS>OPTIONS> and look for a button to delete Temporary
    Internet Files. Then change the setting for how long they are stored.
    Personally, I seel little need to save a file at all. I keep 0 (zero) days
    of temp files.

    I use IE8 but my temp files are still stored in:

    'C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet
    Files\Content.IE5

    I think you'll find that this is always the case, whatever version of IE you
    use.

    They are Temporary files and Cookies.

    I run IE8 but Temp/cookie files are still stored in:

    'C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet
    Files\Content.IE5

    Some cookies remember sign in details for various sites, so be careful
    before you delete them, unless you have them written down somewhere.

    Consider using CCleaner:

    http://www.ccleaner.com/

    DO NOT USE THE REGISTRY ICON

    CCleaner is also a Cookie Manager.

    BEFORE running a clean up , in the left column click Options>Cookies.

    If you visit sites where your sign in details are saved, highlight them and
    click on the right-pointing arrow to move then to the "Cookies to keep"
    column.

    Leave the other settings as default.

    Click the Cleaner (brush) icon>Analyse>Run Cleaner.

    It cleans out lots of unwanted/unnecessary files.
