On Windows XP, is there a way to set up Internet Explorer so that it
will automatically Delete the files and cookies in the "Temporary
Internet Files" folder when exiting IE?

Yes!

In I.E click on the tools menu then select properties. On the far top right
side will be a tab for advanced. Scroll down to the security area and look
for a entry of "Empty Temporary internet flders when browser is closed". Make
sure the check box is selected and then press ok.

I can vouch for this since I use it myself. A detail: This doesn't clear
cookies. Cookies (in IE 6) are controlled on the Privacy tab.

Open IE | Tools | Internet Options | Advanced tab |
scroll down to the bottom | check: Empty Temporary Internet Files folder
when browser is closed | click Apply | click OK
Deletes the content of
%homepath%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet
Files but not the Content.IE5 or Content.MSO folders.

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.

Kyle...Don't you mean "internet options". There is no "properties" in the

Wes...Pete here - we have been conversing in the "can't find message"
thread. You are a smart guy, and I appreciate your inputs (I am liking this
site more and more every day, and I just found it - lol). I wrote you a
preliminary about the dreaded invisible "content.IE5" folder (which pertains
to the content.MSO folder also) in my last post to you in the other thread,
and I see your comments below address it and certainly shed some light on
it. Isn't it amazing I found this post by accident, made a comment on it,
and then saw your comment, which pertains to my post in the other thread -
WOW!

I still have many questions about the 8 subfolders under the invisible
content.IE5 folders, and deleting them, but windows puts them right back (at
least the first one I deleted) - and some of them it won't let you delete
because it says another program is using one of the files........ It now
makes sense that the content.MSO folder (which is also invisible) is related
to Office. MS hides the whole shabang (i.e. content.IE5 and content.MSO),
so you can't mess with it (but you can if you type in the full path name in
the address bar- but you have to know they were there to begin with <g>).
They show up in Irfan thumbnails, but not in windows explorer (isn't that
interesting), and I have everything checked (and unchecked) to show hidden
files. You will see me start to talk about this in my other thread.

Please don't attempt to try and explain anything yet, since I have
additional questions about the invisible content.IE5 folder (mostly), and
the content.MSO folder. As a start is it safe to check the "delete offline
content" box and if I do will it empty all the garbage out of the 8
subfolders in content.IE5 (over 12,000 files and 21MB - they are not TIF's
(I empty them regularly) - did you ever look at them - it is a bunch of
garbage with a lot of it saying "0" kb - what the hell is all that stuff
for - and it just keeps building up until it hits your cache limit you have
set, I assume - but they are not TIF's). I will probably do it anyway - I
doubt it will crash my machine, since you said to go ahead and check the
box.

Now...you have increased my interest in this again (this has intrigued me
for years - it started on my millennium with the IE6 upgrade, but MS didn't
hide the content.IE5 folder in ME, and it didn't have a content.MSO folder).
I bet you know the answers to all my questions. I will write a new post
addressing this stuff and will put "for Wes" in the subject, so you won't
miss it. I really appreciate your help Wes, and I have more questions to
come, in the future, as part of trying to increase my knowledge of windows
XP, and computers in general. Thanks...Pete

Hi Pete,

Close OE and all instances of IE.
Check the box Delete all offline content
This cleans out everything except the index.dat file.
The random named folders under Content.IE5 will just be created again when
you open IE or OE again, with different names.

Hotter than hell here again today 104°F.

Hope this helps. Let us know.

Thanks Wes...I already did it and it worked fine. Like I said, I will write
a new post on what these damn folders are all about and why MS hides them.
Most people wouldn't even know they are there. What state are you in for
the 104 degrees. I'm in Maryland and we are only in the high 90's...Pete.

Wes...I didn't think Colorado was usually that bad (lol). I wrote you a
couple of inline questions in my last post in the "can't find message"
thread, regarding MS monitoring these groups and the MS-MVP stuff. Please
find them and answer them if you can (perhaps you didn't see them inline).
Thanks...Pete

Pete, *I* didn't think that Colorado was usually this bad. I don't have air
conditioning in my house and usually don't need it.

I'll have a look at can't find message.

I just checked the weather, Fair 102°F. Fair?? Hah!

Pete,

It doesn't normally get into the 100s, let alone above 90 for any length of
time here. I have three ceiling fans and three 20" fans. And right now the
humidity is only 13%. :o )

I tried this and the files still do not get deleted when I exit IE. In
fact, not even when I recycle the PC.

I'm running Windows XP HOME EDITION, if that makes any difference. I
did go back and saw that the box didn't get unchecked, and it didn't.

Thanks, Tom

This is due to lock placed in the TIF folder, by various other software
(such as OE, Messengers etc)

The option "Empty Temporary Internet Files folders when browser is closed"
does not work ?:
