I'm having problem when surfing net using IE, my temporary file is not saved after I closed my browser. I had checked there's no [Empty temporary files when browser closes] in the IE's options.

Thanks for any help

Why do you want to save these files? Of course it's your business, but to me it sounds like something gone right if these files just disappear.

I suppose you could take a look at the max size for the temp file directory; if set to very low figure I suppose very few files may be saved there.

open control panel | Internet options

Under the general tab : Temperory internet files - select Settings

make sure an option other than "never" is selected (suggest always)

make sure  "disk space to use" is set higher than 0 (suggest  around 200 MB at the lowest)

Actually Ahpaul, I would recommend setting it between 40 and 80 MB. These are optimal settings. Higher than 80 can actually slow things down due to seek time. Most files on the internet are very small. So at a higher setting you would end up with a LIBRARY of files. Its like searching for a word in a 50,000 page dictionary as oppsed to a 500 page dictionary.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Ok, I think I never ask my question clearly:

1) I'm on 56k
2) IE load a page without checking the temporary files
3) This occurs after I closed all my IE
4) I don't want to use IE like this, It's slow on surfing net

Thanks

Internet Explorer doesn't handle cache very well. Opera 7 www.opera.com is a better browser if you're looking for efficiency. Otherwise, go to the Control Panel/Internet Options. Under "Temporary Internet files" Click "Settings". Under "Check for newer versions of stored pages" choose either "Every time you start internet explorer" or "Never". For the fastest loading choose never. Clicking the "Refresh" button in IE will always reload the page from the net.

Happy surfing.
