    XP operating system

    A friend and 3 of her kids share a computer with different accounts,they all build up temporary internet files etc,getting them to delete them is a nightmare,can they all be deleted from the main account,in one fell swoop without having to go into each account seperately?

    Get a proggie that cleans up files. I have one that I paid for[after liking the trial] TuneUp utilities 2003, but I'm sure others here'll recommend similar free tools that cleans up the temps easily and fast with a click or two. Don't know if all can be wiped in one shot tho'.
    EDIT
    lol, just saw it's you posting telecom :p .... you obviously know about such afore-mentioned software; I'll only not delete my post in case someone else gets some benefit from my suggestion. :rolleyes:

    bobol I obviously know about deleting TemporaryInternet files but this is a specific problem concerning multiple user accounts that I have never come across before,but this friend wants to know can she delete ALL such files from her account without having to go in each account seperately ....its a genuine question because if you think about it 4 users means 4 times the amount of temp files etc,could amount to quite a lot,and I have never used a multiple user computer......

    Instead of paying for a clean up programme, how about reducing the size of the cache to the very minimum? I thought there was a way automatically to delete these things on shutdown. Someone will rmember it.

    You're a star, Rude - I knew it was in there somewhere but at 08:00 on a bright, breezy British Sunday morning, I couldn't find it. Maybe I'll wake up in a while.
