internet cache?

harrykarry asked
where do you go to flush your i.e cache history cookies etc....?
Watch Question

Go to Control Panel > General. Look for the button "Delete Files" and click on it. I dont remember if this deletes the cookies or not. To clear the history click on the "Clear History" button which is located on the same tab page as the other button.

The Crazy One


Open ie
Select tools, Internet options
Under general tab,
Select temporary Internet files, settings
Set temporary Internet file to about 10MB, select ok
Under general tab, select history; keep for 5/10/15/ days or whatever is reasonable for you.

Good Luck!
Or if you want to do it manually (or just to ensure they are gone) open the folders:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Cookies
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\History

Replace Administrator with whatever your username is... If your machine was upgraded from an NT machine then these folder are going to be under C:\Winnt\profiles

This should clean them out.
