cookies and temporary files from web sites visited

You can set Internet Explorer to delete them each time you log off

or right click 'C' drive in windows explorer and click properties - then run disk cleanup - tick temp internet files

CleanUp! click here will zap it but it will be recreated the next time you use Internet Explorer.

This click here was recommended in another thread. I've tried it and it works, so easy too.
