clearing cache

  carolann 21:49 07 May 2010

I have been able to clear my history/cookies/temp files with no trouble for many years . Suddenly I have some that I cannot delete in anyway at all . I have all security and have checked for spyware/Adaware but they are still resisting .

If you want to delete the cache manually try "ccleaner" here -

click here

For Future Use - click here

Remember to untick 'Presreve Favourites website data' box In IE8. Otherwise it will even prevent Ccleaner from deleting them.
Piriform have their work cut out as the new IE9 will be more security tight against third party Ccleaners.

HI I have now managed to clear my cache completely. But if I log off imediately then log on again my cache is once again filled up, even though I have just logged onto my email. Is not only cookies but other items as well that I do not recognise.

Download and Run "Malwarebytes" from this LINK.

This works using windows own tools,
click here

but once you open and use IE again, such things as favicons from your favourites appear again in the temp files folder.
