    I am having a problem deleting all of the files in the temporary internet files folder. Nor am I getting any error message. If I select all and hit delete nothing happens. If I deselect and use the right click drop down menu and select "delete" nothing happens".
    I would appreciate any advice someone could give me. O yeah, it is a Dell Pc with Win98. YOu might need to know that! Thank You, Moonifa:)

    Try launching IE, going to Tools>>Internet Options>>Delete Files>>OK

    How many megs of files do you have in there? I was trying to clear a computer with nearly a gig of files in there and it crashed the comp to delete, and I just had to delete a few at a time.

    You can probably boot into DOS mode and clear it that way too, but I didn't know how to use DOS yet at that time.
