Hi,

On Windows XP for Internet Explorer the cookies and cache files are stored in the following file path: C:\Documents and Settings\<User Name>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\.

FireFox will store the cookies in C:\Documents and Settings\<user Name>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<Profile Name>\cookies.txt and the cache in C:\Documents and Settings\Chris Firth\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\lh2nzhfv.default\Cache.

On Linux, it depends on what browser you are using

You can view your firefox cache by typing "about:cache" in the address bar.

Chris

Matthew, all Windows XP computers will have it, it may be hidden though. Try checking if you have hidden files enabled.

I can't see a directory equivalent to local settings.
I have a directory :
C:\Documents and Settings\<User Name>\Cookies
But I can't see cache information in it
