    A friend of mine just got into computers...purchasing an older Dell with Windows 98 (I believe, 2nd Edition) installed. He wanted to know the location of the temporary & cache folders, so as to bypass using "Disk Cleanup" to totally get rid of cookies & web images & temporary files, etc.

    Running XP myself, I know where the folders are located; & have made myself shortcuts to them on my desktop. Not having ran Win98SE for a while, I'm unsure where they are on that OS.

    Can anyone help me on this one?

    The three folders are in the C:\Windows directory - Cookies, Temp and Temporary Internet Files folders. Those folders can to be emptied ad lib.

    Clear the IE browser's Cache as well:

    Click the Start button; Point to Control Panel, select Internet Options; In the box that opens, click the Clear History; Delete Cookies And Delete Files buttons (tick the box next to, 'Delete all off-line content', each in turn; In the box that opens after activating each button, click the OK button. Click OK to close the Internet Options window.
