Q.  How Do I Get XP To Empty The Temporary Internet File Folder When My Browser Closes?

A.  The temporary internet file folder stores a complete record of all of your internet activity. Web sites attached files to this folder that enable them to quickly launch pages that you have previously visited. The only problem is that the temporary internet file folder can easily become bogged down with files you no longer need. There is also the security aspect. You don't want someone pocking around trying to find out what sites you have visited.  The easiest way to prevent this is to make sure that the Temporary Internet Folder is cleared every time you close Internet Explorer 6.0.

1. Click the Start button

2. In the start menu click Control Panel

3. When the Control Panel Window opens click the Internet Options icon

4. The Internet Options window opens

5. Now click the Advanced tab

6. Look down the list of options in the advanced window until you find the Security section

7. Place a check mark next to the option 'Empty temporary internet files folder when browser closes.'

8. Click OK to exit

In some cases you may find that when checking the advanced tab in the Internet options window the 'Empty temporary internet files folder when browser closes.' option is not available. This is due to a registry problem and can be remedied by trying the following:

Method One

1. Click the Start button

2. From the Start menu click Run

3. In the Run dialogue box type: regsvr32 /n /i inetcpl.cpl

4. Press OK
