Temp Folders/files

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics (More info?)

Hello to Malke, Mike H & Ken B,
Thank you for your welcome.
Since receiving a curt 'wrap on the knuckles' for not doing my research
properly into another annoying prob I had, I tend to hold back and read
through as many similar posts as poss.
I can see the ways to get rid of temp files etc but I do not understand what
is happening in my partic. case.
I have a home/self build (28 May 2005)comp. for flight sim usage in the
main.
The help I got is no longer there for me.
In My Comp/Winxp(D:)/Temp there are currently 52 Files & 5 Folders using
4.93MB on disk. These have built up from 5 files and 3 folders on 19 August
2005. I cant find a way to copy these on-block into this post
so..............
The folders are;
Cookies with an Index.dat file, 16kb dated 21/08/05 - the date sometimes
changes but nothing goes in it.
History with another folder History.IE5. In this is desktop.ini config
settings 1kb creat/modified 21/08/05 plus an index.dat file created
21/08/05, modif 25/08/05
Temp Int Files containing Content.IE5 folder created 13/08/05
containing the same/similar desktop config creat/mod 21/08/05
and index.dat file creat 23/08/05 - mod 25/08/05.
Nothing changes in the above folders.
Now each time I switch on and off the others recreate themselves - recently
a load of IMTxx.xml files came in as well.
The others are mainly ZLTOxxx.TMP, -DFCxxx.tmp, -DF(then a number)xxx.tmp
The DF and ZLT I can see are I.E. TMP files. Every time I switch on I get
one of each, with slight changes.
Togther with the above 3 I get 2 Perflib_Perfdata's but they dont always
join the others. These are noted as DAT files with unknown applic.
Oh I hope to God you are still with me!!!!!
In My Comp/WinXP (D:)/Windows there is another Temp folder which is empty
and has always been so since build.
Some weeks ago I happened to venture into 7-Zip and in there is a
desktop.ini created 21/08/05 and a dat.file created 23/08/05 unknown
applic. - seems to be the same as others mentioned above.
When I do a disk clean, nothing goes from the ever filling Temp. folder,
certainly none of those indicated as temp int files. And disk clean says I
have nothing in Temporary files at all. Is there another temp folder
somewhere that I cannot see.
When I look into D\Docs & Setting\name\Local Sets\Temp In files is is packed
and nothing seems to go from there either.
On 15/08/05 my co-builder did a reinstall of XP but problem continued.
Prior to that this Temp folder had contained 600 plus files. Deleting those
that would delete in groups of 20 at a time only made then regenerat as
copy, then cop2, then copy 3 - up to copy 8. So each one had to be deleted
one at a time.
And that is whay I have to do now. The only ones that do ot delete are
those most recently generated.
I am so sorry this has turned out to be such a long post and that you have
managed to endure the journey.

    To delete *all* Temporary Internet Files...

    1) Start | Run | Type: inetcpl.cpl | OK
    Or right click the Internet Explorer icon on your Desktop.
    Or: Start | Settings | Control Panel | Internet Options.
    Best to do this with all instances of Internet Explorer closed. Especially
    if there are a large number of files.
    2) On the General Tab, in the middle of the screen, click on Delete Files
    3) Check the box  Delete all offline content {This cleans >>
    %homepath%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
    AND
    %homepath%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5
    and \Content.MSO (Created by an MS Office program)}
    4) Click on OK and wait for the hourglass icon to stop after it deletes the
    temporary internet files
    5) You can now click on Delete Cookies and click OK to delete cookies that
    websites have placed on your hard drive.

    pages in history: 0 | Apply | OK.
    -----

    Clear IE History, AutoComplete, Clear the TIF, Clear the Run MRU, Typed

    Testing, Testing, I am also wondering if this thing is on.
    I have replied three times to you and K.B. without success.
    Got through to Andrew and have done his bit.
    If this works I will try again to reply to your help

    Antioch,

    As Sharon posted in your other thread, Reply to Group not Reply to Sender.

    I read all messages in the preview pane. I right click the message header
    and click Reply to Group. Occasionally I hit Reply to Sender without being
    aware of it. I usually discover this long after the fact. I have
    Automatically put people I reply to in my Address Book set and this applies
    only to E-mail messages not newsgroup messages. I will be looking through
    my Address Book and see something like
    JoeBobBriggs@discussions.microsoft.com Who the heck is that? ;-)

    If you hit Reply to Sender to me, I'll never get the message as my address
    is munged, just like yours is.

    Anyway, I thought you might like something to chuckle at. :-)

    Dangit, I just looked through my Address Book and found three of these
    entries.

    Hello Wesley
    I have done rgt click on your first reply.
    Then All Groups.
    What is different though is that your reply is not there. In my first
    attempt, I spliced my responses/comment at each stage of your help.
    I get same result if I double lft click on your reply and thenclick all
    groups - your info goes again.
    So I am even more confused.
    But I shall continue regadless.
    Thank you such a clear set of instructions
    1) That is how I currently get rid of temp/int/files & cookies.
    2 & 3) I have often wondered about this - thanks for giving the confidence
    to check.

    4 & 5) DONE - Everything has gone when I viewed files etc.
    Thanks for the pic - most useful.

    I'll try anything but musnt get too cocky!
    So into the Advanced tab - DONE - thats cool.

    Clear History - DONE. As a rule I always clear on leaving I.E.
    Does one way clear better than the other?

    Set days to 0 - DONE

    Clear IE Hist/AutoComplete etc etc

    Woops - youre starting to lose me here - the red haze is coming. Hairs are
    pricking up on the neck. This where you start to talk to the 'pork'
    I am in Classic - I prefer it -
    I have got to 'clear button' and click OK. So I am back in Start menu/task
    bar but there is no Apply option.
    Classic is still ticked - I can click OK or Cancel as choices.
    Sorry to appear so stupid - could you please clarify this last bit. Do I go
    back to Start again/props/custom etc

    Would you say this last bit is a weekly routine or not. I clear temp/int &
    cookies weekly.
    Now all I have to do s cross everything and pray this gets through to you.

    Right click the Start button | Properties | Customize button | Clear button
    |
    Click OK

    Apply will be grayed out because you haven't changed anything.

    I clear everything every day. Depends on your web surfing and newsgoups
    habits.

    Hello Wesley
    To top-post or not to top-post, that is the question? -
    thats why I tend to splice - shouldnt offend either camp!
    Thank you so much for your help - including the posting bit - what a twit -
    everything is now clear.
    I have your instructions typed out and stuck to the side of the tower.
    Im afraid I am also a daily cleaner.
    However I can see little point in using diskclean - cant say it does
    anything.

    >> Rgds
    >> Antioch
    'You can't educate pork' - but one more step in the right direction.
    P.S.
    Pcbutts - I saw a post re this name - got a right earfull from a Miss P - I
    have a feeling I went onto this site in May. Is there a prob there - didnt
    want to do a new post and I cant remember what it was I used.
    If all OK dont reply - silence will tell me.
    Thank you again.

    Hi Everyone,
    I have seen very many requests on the newsgroups for
    removing these damm tempory files. I too had lots accumulate. Some of which
    defied deletion. I found a program that I use and it works most of the time.
    For the older users in Dos there was a program called X-Tree Gold and it was
    a great program for all sorts of things. Well there is now a 32 bit version
    that works with all the Windows up to XP. I suggest some of you go get it and
    try it. It will deletecomplete branches of your directory. BUT BEWARE it is
    very powerful and as such it can maybe do naughty things in the wrong hands.
    Good deleting

    Wouldn't dare use it then! My hands are definitely wrong when it comes to
    self cleaning my PC. I will always delete something I shouldn't have. It
    has cost me so much money to clean up and put right that I could have almost
    bought another PC. I've had to reload so many programmes again, good job I
    keep all the CD ROMs. LOL. Still learning, after 5/6 years of PC and
    surfing. The early computers didn't interest me, hubby still has a ZX81 and
    a Spectrum in the loft, that he found fascinating but I didn't.

    I love my PC and the internet much better than watching TV.

    I have Disk Cleaner set to run quiet at startup. Runs for 5 seconds or so
    and exits. I also like the fact that, after you set it up, it cleans all
    the following with one click (and/or automatically at boot). Makes XP's
    Disk Cleanup look like a piker. XP's Disk Cleanup will *not* clean
    Content.IE5.

    Disk Cleaner will Clean:
    Temporary Internet Files {Including the contents of the Content.IE5 folder}
    Internet Cookies
    Internet History
    System Temporary Folder
    Recent Documents
    Run... Dialog List
    Find Document List
    Find Computer List
    URLs in IE Address Bar
    URLs in Shell Address Bar
    Media Player Recent URLs
    WinZip Recent Files
    WinZip Extract To Folders
    Paint Recent Files
    WordPad Recent Files
    Cleans Recycle Bin (what else?)
    Opera Cache
    Opera Cookies
    Opera History
    Opera Visited links
    Opera Download History and Download folder
    Firefox Cache
    Firefox Cookies
    Firefox History

    Hi Gus
    Many thanks for your suggestion.
    But - 'in the wrong hands' - that red haze appeared.
    I have those hands.
    I put it in Favourites - might try it later/sometime/in the future say.
