    Good evening. Is there a relatively easy way to delete the files in the Temporary Interenet files\Content.IE folders? I find the only way I can delete them is to manually go into each folder and delete the files. If there is a quicker way to accomplish this task, that would certainly be a great time saver.

    Thanks

    A good freeware to use is Ccleaner. It will even handle index.dat files. Do a search here at the forum for index.dat for more information about them.

    Sekirt, thanks for the suggestion. With this program, I am unsure what to do with the "issues" that are found. Is there some way to save a log and show it to you or one of your colleagues for advice on what is safe to delete and what I should save?

    Thanks very much,
    stuarth

    The "issues" could be skipped. That deals with the registry and shortcuts. Just use the Windows portion (first screen).

    If you did choose to use the issues part, you are asked if you want to make a backup of what is removed. It doesn't instantly run like the Windows section does. That way you should be able to put things back, if you discovered problems.

    I use the issues section, so far haven't had it find anything fatal. Based on other registry cleaners I use, I would call it "lightweight" cleaning. I have never made backups, because of that.

    If you wanted to post what the issues section finds, without removing anything, I think you would have to type it all out or take a screenshot and post the picture.
