Open Control Panel, then Java Control Panel. Click on the Temp Internet Files "Settings" and look at the Cache setting. You may have to create your setting in the JAR properties, if it exists. If not, you have to create a new. This page explains the procedure for increasing cache and buffer size:

Thanks for the replies. First off I'm not that great with Java so please bare with me.
1) Right now the setting to store java temp files localiing is already unchecked.
2) In regards to the buffer & cache sizes listed mentioned in the article above. I'm confused on where to make these changes on my Windwos XP workstatino
3) I'm referring to the java buffer and cache size is there a registry setting I can set some where to increase these vaules to my resource hogging java program can load faster

I don't think you need to do anything extra to run java program, you can try increasing the virtual memory
of windows box if memory is an issue.
