My wife and I both have accts on our desktop computer at home. We're running XP Pro SP2. I'm the admin and she's not.

When I want to clean up stuff like cookies, temp internet files, etc., do i need to log on as her to clean out her part? Or does it all get cleaned out all at once when I log on as the admin under my own name?

Hi Tom!

By default, deleting temp. internet files, cookies, etc. by using "Disk cleanup" or from your web browser will only delete your stuff. These files are stored in separate folders (just as your documents are) for each user.

If you're an admin you could of course go and delete these files manually, but it's probably easier just to log into her account.
