unable to delete internet cache

  henry1 12:38 19 Nov 2004

I have files in my internet cache that will not delete. I go to internet options>settings>view files> select them all and delete but nothing happens. If I use Norton it says 172kb in 23 files, I delete them and it confirms delete but when I go back they are still there or have returned. any ideas

Tools-internet options-general-temp internet files-delete. Click this and you will see a new tab with delete all offline content. CHECK THIS BOX and it will likely fix the prob.

I'm not sure of this will work on AOL to fix the links problem. The suggestion that it is due to temporary internet files is a suggestion born out of desperation rather than reality.

1. Quit all programs that are running.

2. Click Start, and then click Run.

3. Type

regsvr32 urlmon.dll

and then click OK.

4. When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded" message, click OK.

If this does not resolve the problem, repeat steps 2 through 4 for each of the following files (in step 3, replace Urlmon.dll with each of the file names below):

Many thanks for all the help from everyone.
To 'canard' that worked cache is now empty thanks.
to 'VoG' did not try your fix instead installed AOL 9 and looks like problem solved must have been somthing in AOL 7 but thanks for the support.
