Every time I start up the computer and then connect to the internnet, I check my IE temporary files on my J: drive. When I go to Cleanup, I alway finds that it has already been cleared! at 0.00 mb. I don't want XP to automatically empty this dirve but it does. I mean I gave the J drive 500MB just for internet temp files. The reason I don't want it emptied is that I am a 56k' modem surfer. I know that xp has emptied my Internet Temporary files when NTFS takes like 3 minutes to fully load onto my computer. Is there a setting to avoid XP clearing the files. This also happens on Windows XP Professional which I am running on a dual boot. Thank you.
