Temporary Internet files--what are they ?

Each time you open a Web page, your browser creates a cache file (a temporary copy) of the page's text and graphics. When you open the page again, for example, when you click on the toolbar Back button, your browser checks the Web site server for changes to the page. If the page has changed, your browser retrieves a new version over the network. If the page hasn't changed, your browser uses the cache files from your RAM or hard drive to display the page. For example, Internet Explorer caches Web pages to both memory (RAM) and disk (hard drive) until the respective cache is full; Internet Explorer  then rotates out pages based on age. Internet Explorer  designed this system to help load Web pages quicker. However, if you've viewed lots of Web pages, you may have an overloaded hard disk cache, which Internet Explorer  will have to check before it loads a new page. Unfortunately, over time, your browser's cache grows. A cache full of outdated information is worse than no cache at all. It causes problems with Java applets, causes you to see out of date text or images, and makes your browser sluggish starting and exiting. The solution is to clear out the cache.

By default, the location of  temporary Internet files (for Internet Explorer) is

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

( For Win2000 and Windows XP) and

c:\WINDOWS\Temporary Internet Files

( for Win95, Win98 ,Windows ME)

 
 

How to delete temporary Internet files manually ?

To clear your temporary Internet files in Navigator 4.x, go to the Edit menu and select Preferences..., then go to the Advanced category, select Cache, and click both the Clear Memory Cache and Clear Disk Cache buttons.

To clear your temporary Internet files in Internet Explorer, go to the View menu and select Internet Options.... Then click on the General tab. Go to the Temporary Internet files section and click the Delete Files button.

Both of these procedures will delete the temporary files that these Web browsers use to redisplay pages. These temporary files can take up lots of hard disk and RAM space, and slow down you computer. Clearing your temporary Internet files will not adversely effect your browser in any way and it can help increase your page download time and your computer's general performance.
