Hi Chris,

Sorry to contradict you, but this is a common
missunderstanding.

Cookies and Temporary Internet Files are two different
things.

Cookies contain information you have provided when you
visited a site.  So when you re-visit the site, it can save
you having to re-enter the information.

There are utilities which allow you to delete these
selectively.

Temporary Internet Files are locally stored copies of pages
you have visited, and are intened to save time downloading a
page you have visited previously.

With today's broadband speeds, it's hardly worth having such
pages stored, and so it usually pay to get rid of them, and
recover the disk space.

George.

Hi, you should only delete your temporary internet files etc
if you plan to, for example, not use the site regularly. You
see, temporary internet files include cookies, small text
files that holds information to the site hosting the
cookie(s). The information can include log in and password,
for example. 
Hope this helps.
