Many of those files are needed. When asked to clean out your "cache", most are referring to the files that are maintained by your browser which allow it to quickly load websites that it's visited before. In Internet Explorer, it's found in the Cookies and Temporary Internet Files folders. It can be cleaned by opening the Control Panel, double click on the "Internet Options" icon, then the "General" tab, then look to the "Temporary Internet Files" section, then click on the "Delete Files" button. When the next little window pops up, choose "Delete all offline content", then click on OK. Now click on the "Delete Cookies" button and the cookies will be removed.
In order to clear the cache in Firefox, open FF, then click on "Tools", choose "Options" When the "Option" window loads, click on the "Cache" tab and choose the "Clear cache now" button. Now click on the "cookies" tab, and delete all the cookies listed there.
Other browsers have similar methods of cleaning out their cache.
Hope this helps.
I've been looking around but can't find a specific answer to my question.
I want to empty my cache. Not sure where it was so I did a search and loads of items came up. There were folders in C:\Documents and Settings, loads of different ones. Also there was stuff like CACHEDIR.TAG and LISTCACHE.DAT which wasn't a folder but an icon, but maybe this was something that was inside one of the folders. DOH!! I just dunno.....
Is it safe to get rid of everything 'search' came up with, I mean like the whole folder and all the icons with it??
I'm using Win XP and Mozilla.
Thanks in advance, Kiai x
