Michele, I can respond to part of this, anyway. --- michele <michele@xxxxxxxx> wrote: > > C:\Windows\TEMP\Temporary Internet Files > Content IE5 > 0pqvglij > 1jhn7eel > 4bbwy9yy > Kdiz0p27 I don't have such a file in my windows\TEMP folder. > > C:\Windows\Temporary Internet Files > Content IE5 > 67bkyaed > 81evsta3 > C9qr8xu3 > Gpm3kdu3 > Idehap0I > Kqu1e41q > Ov4rwvgt > P7sip647 > Sp6iahj3 > Vo9nvat1 > Wby589kz > Wd2n8x2j *** > Wpif0p2v > X1779w1h *** > Xsgcg52g > Zqnrgi63 I asked about this very thing on another list, & I was told that when I open the browser and go to Tools-Internet Options and delete the contents of the temporary internet folder, if I put a check in the box in the pop up window where it asks if you want to delete offline content, those funny-named folders full of duplicate info will disappear. I just did that, and they all disappeared. At least until I started to use my browser again. Now they are back, and I checked the properties of a few of them, they were created just now. Deleting the offline content got rid of about 54 MB worth of stuff for me anyway, so you might want to give that a try. My son plays a lot of online games, and I think these build up the size of the Temporary Internet folder rather quickly. Not to mention, I tend to get some snarls in browser function as well. As for the other problems with slowdowns and such, have you run system file checker and an updated antivirus scan? Brenna __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
