    Ley us know what OS you have.

    Under Windows Explorer you can go to the Windows folder, go down to the Temp folder. As long as you have no other applications open, it's safe to delete everything in the Temp folder.

    Under IE, you can click on Tools, Internet Options, then clikc the button to clear temporary internet files.

    Here's some other tips:
