    o_O Hello,

    Thought I would ask the 'professionals' before I did any damage!!

    ¿Can I SAFELEY DELETE all the data IN the 'Content IE5 folder' located at:

    C:/Documents& Settings/my name/Config Local/Temp Arch..of Internet/Content IE5. ?(may be slightly different as my version is in Spanish).

    I realise that the ACTUAL folder should not be deleted.

    At the moment it appears to contain dozens of cookie and alerts.

    Please advise if I CAN delete all of these.

    Your valuable time is appreciated.

    Cheers :) lovelyperson

    HI lovelyperson. :)

    Short answer, yes.

    Just to be on the safe side though, in case you are unsure and think you may grab the wrong items, why not let IE do it for you.

    In IE, along top menu bar....> Tools/Internet Options.
    General TAB
    Click on Delete Files, a box will open.
    Check the 'Delete all Offline Content'.... Click OK
    It may take a while if you have never done it, be patient.
    Once finished, the original window wil be open, then Click on Delete Cookies.
    OK window...

    Done. :)

    See pic.

    Cheers, TAS

    edit: This line:
    What do you mean by alerts?

    One other option with IE is to set Internet Options/Advanced to clear the cache whenever you exit IE.

    I've found that Tassie's "Delete files" will, however, usually catch and delete some things that mine leaves behind. And Disk Cleanup, after you're offline, typically finds more still. So essentially it's a 3-step process -- 4, if you add manual deletion after doing the others.

    :) Excellent, thank you for your replies, Tassie_Devils & MikeBCda.

    Result..........clean sheet!!

    Tassie_Devils, sorry re: the 'alerts' comment. Followed your instructions and as a result am left with a blank page, which is what I wanted!!

    I think the 'alerts' ref was to the Norton virus notices re : 'Bloodhound 6' which was picked up whilst using IE, not certain.

    Anyway, again thanks for your quick and positive replies.

    It is people like YOU that help people like US.......LEARNERS.

    Cheers to you, ;) lovelyperson
