Hi, There are two things they may mean.

Open Internet Explorer>at the top, select Tools>Internet Options> Click Delete Files. Clear History.

Now for Cookies> clearing these will mean that you MUST have a good record of your passwords and login names at sites that use them, such as your bank, any other sites you have registered at and sign into> the first time you go back to those sites, you will/may have to type in your login name and password, and then on you can login automatically (the site will "recognize" you). It's a good idea to clear cookies, but take the precaution noted if you do.

Then, in normal Windows(for XP) from Start>All Programs>Accessories>Disk Cleanup
For win9x: Start> Programs>Accessories>Disk C.

run that, checks into temp, Temp Internet Files, and Recycle Bin, make sure you have not put anything in the Bin you need...
