it will work if i delete individually though thats a huge pain.

Jean download an application called CleanCache from www.buttuglysoftware.com
You will need .NET framework to be installed on your pc before it will work
so if it .NET framework isn't already installed download it from the windows
update site (approx 23MB). Once you install Cleancache run the application
click the Internet explorer tab and put a tick in the box of everything you
want it to clear - including the index.dat files. Next click the Windows tab
and do the same with that. Finally click the 'run complete cleanup button'
to start the clean up.
If you want to know more about CleanCache check out the review on my web
site http://freespace.virgin.net/john.freelanceit/index.htm

Click the Review button and then select CleanCache from the review menu.
There are other application that do a similar job but I've found CleanCache
the best so far - and, most importantly it's free.

thanks john;

wel, when huby came home from work he tried his account on our pc and it
worked for him, but stil not my account.
When i came to my account this morning it had cleared, (weird) but since- i
have been using again -i tried again and it wont work again.

i show your suggestion to huby as i dont no much about this stuff. and
scared to make it worse. i didnt want hubu to see my history in case he
spotted xmas pressies things.

ta again jean.
