Content.IE5 folder

  hiwatt 09:41 24 Feb 2009

Hi folks,in my local settings/temporary internet files folder there is a folder called content.IE5.I've had a look in it and there are 4 folders with names like "47A34NYP" that contain various pictures of celebrities and some microsoft logos etc.There are also thing related to stuff I've downloaded but long since deleted.Does anyone know if it is safe to delete these folders,as I can't see what use they would have?Thanks.

I just done a bit of googling and apparently the content.IE5 folder contains information of visited websites etc and can be deleted safely?I'll wait to here what others here have to say before doing so though.

I use both 'CCleaner' and 'Index.dat Analyser' what one doesn't delete the other one does. click here
It's only for WinXP and it's free.
