When I go into tools and click on temporary internet options & click on temporary internet Files I can delete the cookies. There is another option to delete the files, is it safe to delete the files? I periodically clear out the cookies, but I have never deleted the files. The files are a mile long & I'm afraid to delete them in case they are needed to keep the computer working properly. Thanks in advance for any help. Ladybug

These are just cached files. When you go to a webpage it gets cached on your machine so it loads fast when you go there again. It`s safe to get rid of these. They only really benefit you if you have a slow connection.

You might also want to review the number of days of history retained (which can cause these files to grow over time).

From your browser - Click Tools, Internet Options - from the General Tab under the Browsing History section press the Settings button.

You'll see the numbers of days retained in the History section - 7 is generally more than enough.

Thanks Inland. I thought it was safe to delete them, but better to ask first. Thanks again.
