I clean my PC every evening at end of play. It`s entirely up to you whether or not you want to delete them. Some are OK, in fact a lot are OK, and it`s because I don`t know enough about them that I delete. I wipe my Temporary Internet Files clean of about 6 to 9 Mb of stuff and it has`nt harmed me since

ok but do the cookies not store things like pictures from a website and when you go to the website again it load up faster??

Pictures etc are stored in the temporary internet cache not in cookies, cookies contain the sites address and your preferences for viewing the site, ie: some forums will let you changes the background colour and font types, also what threads you have viewed etc, they can contain other bits and bobs but not pictures or any other content.

Entirely down 2 preference, for example when you log into this forum theres a box to tick to say remember my details. This is done via a cookie. Your temporary internet files as has been stated contains pics and pieces from websites.

Personally I clean out my temporary internet files everytime I come off line and my cookies once in a while
