A friend says every visit to a web site is stored as a temporary file. Is this true and will it clog my tiny computers hard drive with rubbish i dont need? If so, how do i get rid of them and can i stop it from happening. Help much appreciated..

Hi wunup. Follow the instructions of OneSirKnight, and while you have the Internet Options panel open, click on the Settings button. You can then see how much disk space is allocated to Temporary Internet files. You can reduce the amount either by moving the slider or by typing the figure into the window. What happens is that as the allocated space gets filled the oldest files drop off the end. The reason IE saves the files is so they can be reused if you revisit a web site, and so save download time.
