Making a DOS batch as mentioned below and running it in DOS mode wll remove the junks in one go. It also removes the index.dat files that Mike has mentioned. It leaves the PC clean of the junk and navigation of Internet quicker ( since the size of index .dat is reduced). You can name the files as cleantif.bat. Two cautions: 1> Do not run it in windows. 2> It will delete cookies also HTH M.Thakur ******* Your bat file begins after this line*********** choice /T:y,15 Will automatically continue in 15 seconds cd\windows smartdrv deltree /Y cookies deltree /Y applog deltree /Y history deltree /Y temp deltree /Y tempor~1 ******* Your bat file ends before this line*********** ----- Original Message ----- From: "michele" <michele@xxxxxxxx> Subject: [24hoursupport] Temporary Files > I have two questions about temporary files.
