Go to:
1) Start/computer
2) Right click on c drive
3) Click properties/disk cleanup
4) Do this maintenance function and make sure the temp internet files box is checked and it will clean that up along with the other boxes you check.
5) Do this once a month

You can delete temporary internet files through your web browser.
Here's how to do it in IE 7 and 8.

The actual password(s) are stored on the site(s) you visit. Remember the registration forms you filled out? Remember you had, in most cases, to enter a password, amongst other things? So deleting Temporary files doesn't delete your passwords, just the information obtained from a site that helps that sites' pages load quicker.

JIMMYK,

Adventure Shop has always sent me links via email for downloading the files. Have you tried just clicking on them and downloading with your browser? Not with a download manager? I believe you said that your browser has a DL manager built in. Can you disable it? Or could you just use another browser like IE or Opera? Honestly, I've never had any trouble downloading the files through the links I've been sent and I do not use a DL manager except for GOG's which is more or less a 'have to'...and it works great.

Gil.
