I have noticed when running Trojan Hunter that there are many files in
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\

I try to clean temp files on a regular basis online and click the offline button.

Can these all be deleted by manually going into the C: drive without crashing my computer? :tazz:

Thanks for your help in advance.

Download and install CCleaner (free). Open the cleaner, set the options you want in the Windows tab and run the cleaner. You can also press the issues tab and then press scan for issues, put a tick in all boxes produced and press fix selected issues, take the option of making a back up and press fix all selected issues, click OK and close. Run the scan for issues until it shows no issues found. The Tools section is an uninstaller and in settings you can opt to clean the computer on boot

Also you can go to "My Computer" and right click on your Hard Disk (usually C:\) and click "Properties", next click the "Disk Cleanup" button on the right hand side about halfway down the properties window. Let it scan, and then scroll through the list and place checks in the boxes of your choice and then run it.

Thanks for your help -=jonnyrotten=- I did that. Of course I also downloaded the CCleaner before I realized it was a member that gave that to me and not staff. Is this a valid program?

Yes it is, but be careful, if you don't know exactly what you're removing you may clean up more than you want. It's a little powerful if you don't have the proper knowledge.

I think I'll stick with your way. I'd end up crashing my computer. :tazz:

Also, thank you so much for sticking with me on my VX2 problem. ;)
