How can you view the files in the Temporary Internet files system folder?  On my system it is located at C: Documents and Settings\MyComputerName\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files.  Is it okay to delete the files in this folder?

IE has a built in tool that can be uses to delete the files in this folder. Ha but it doesn't do a very good job of it.

Oops I meant Start > Settings > Control Panel > Internet Options
I forgot the Internet Options in my comment.

Personally I prefer doing it through the control panel with all the browser windwos closed. This way IE isn't locking any files down that it would have open if IE was running. Deletes more files this way. :)
