Please help!!!!! I have a compaq laptop with windows XP. On the Internet Explorer, Whenever I go to "Tools" "internet options" On the "General Tab" under Temporary Internet files, I click "Delete Files" The page freeze up. I have to pretty much shut down the PC to get the internet running again. I think there is a problem in the Temporary Internet Files.

Please help me delete these files or figure out what is going on. Thanks

There is a way to delete all those temporary internet files with a free utility when Internet Explorer has been closed, which would at least get round the problem you're having. It's called "CCleaner", almost everyone uses it since it makes cleaning up a doddle and it empties your Recycle Bin and Windows 'temp' folder also if you want it to. Works with Firefox too.

The "official" version includes the dreaded 'Yahoo Toolbar' which, if you miss the option to deselect it, will promptly install the Toolbar in IE.
But you can avoid that by getting the "Slim" version from here (functions just the same but won't install the toolbar):


(Just choose the nearest server from the links in the middle section of the page)
