[THIN] Re: Script and Temp Internet Files Question

A while back, I created an application that I initially intended on
putting up for sale however I have not finished it yet and it's been a
while, so I'm going to put it out there as freeware/begware.  It is an
application similar to what you are referring to -- it will remove all
traces of IE history, cookies, temporary internet files, and the MRU
cache from the address bar from the system when activated.  I was just
re-vamping it to make it a command-line app with switches to trigger the
different deletions and haven't spent more than 3 hours on it in the
past 2 months.  If you want cookies left in, I can recompile it and
leave the cookies alone...that would take 2 minutes ;-)

If anyone would like the app in its current form - no setup application
and you need to hard-code a registry setting to set it to automatically
run and clear the settings upon execution (Otherwise it prompts the user
whether or not to clear it) - just let me know and I'll mail it.  It
does work well, I just got sidetracked looking for work and never got
back to it.  I will be finishing it soon to the command-line version
which will work better for using it in a script, but this executable
does work well now.  I have a few folks out there who are using it (Jim
K, I think????).

Subject: [THIN] Script and Temp Internet Files Question

Content-Type: text/plain

(Finishing up on my reboot script...attached for review)
(*Thanks for everyone's help thus far)
I asked a question earlier about Temporary Files and was refered to the
Faq.
However, I didn't really see anything that addresses my desire.

I've created a reboot script (attached as txt) and would like to remove
all
the Temporary Internet Files from the system (except cookies) before
defrag
and reboot.

I would like to incorporate something into this script that deletes all
the
*htm, *css, *gif, *jpeg, *vbs, etc.... From the Temporary Internet Files
for
each users local profile...leaving cookie (*.txt) files.  Any
suggestions?

This article I'm allready addressing in the script.
How do I delete Temporary Files on Exit in Windows 2000 Terminal
Services?

This article recommendation does not appear to work.  Temp Internet
files
are still written:

Profile?

This article requires too much admnistration by creating several hundred
folders on users home directories and modifying HKCU.
How can I keep Temporary Internet Files, favorites, and History out of a
user profile using the registry?
