    also, there are alot of proggies out there that will clean out your internet history, temp files etc. I've been using Ashampoo WinOptimizer Suite. Seems to do it nicely and has a bunch of different tools (reg cleaner, drive cleaner etc). The demo works fine, only lets you delete 33% of files at a time though.

    Try this...

    Right Click IE on the desktop and choose properties.

    Select the content tab

    Click the AutoComplete button

    Click 'Clear Forms' and 'Clear Passwords' button

    I'm guessing but i reckon that'll do the job!!!

    :cool:

    maybe a little porno-porn! but that's really werid why your temp. files wouldn't delete. but clearing your history and temp files, as well as the auto complete should pretty much fix things. oh, but if you happened to download any vidoes, make sure you check the, um, its either "my music" or "my videos" folder and delete them. i was freeing up some drive space the other day and there were, um, shall we say multiple files that i didn't know where there, that, say, if some one found that wasn't a friend, say, a parent, youth minister, pastor, or potential girlfriend, it would not have boded well.

    Try the program pop-up stopper companion. It has a built-in history cleaner. I use it and it works fine for me :D
