I came upon it a couple of times, but now I can't find my cache to clear it for Win XP/SP2. Where is my cache or multiple caches so I can clear them?

Hi Region. I do the above a few times a week so that is not my issue. I came upon another cache somewhere else but thank you for replying.

@Philis,
This is what I was looking for I had over 800 temp files in Windows and all but 2 did delete. It shows how to do some good stuff to keep a smoothe PC.

Step 1
Click the Windows "Start" button. Move your
cursor to "Settings" and "Control Panel." Double-click to open "Control Panel."

Step 2
Double-click the "Internet Options" icon. Under "Temporary Internet Files," click "Delete files." Click "OK" to confirm. Click "OK" at the bottom of the Window. Once all files have been deleted, exit Control Panel.

Step 3
Select "Tools" and "Options" from the Firefox menu if you are using Mozilla Firefox as your Internet Browser. Click the "Network" tab. Click the "Clear Now" button in the "Cache" section.

Step 4
Press the "Start" button. Select "Run" from the menu. Type "cmd" in the Run box. At the prompt, type "ipconfig /flushdns." You will receive confirmation when the command runs successfully. Type "exit" after the command has completed.

Step 5
Right-click the "Start" button. Choose "Explore" from the menu. Double-click the "C;" drive. Navigate to the "Windows" folder and open it. Search for the "Temp" folder and double-click it.

Step 6
Choose "Edit" from the menu. Click "Select All." When all the temp files are highlighted, select "File" and "Delete" from the menu. Click "Yes" to verify that you want to delete all the files.

@Philis,
You might be interested in a program called CCleaner (CrapCleaner).

It does all that stuff automatically and also cleans your registery. It is one of the few programs that our PC troubleshooting expert always recommended to folks with malware and spyware troubles. The best part is it is free.

I've used it for more than 5 years and can vouch for it.

@Philis,
I use CCleaner on a weekly basis Phillis.

Thouroughly reccomend it.

Never had any problems. No privacy concerns, no advertising, no fees, voluntry donations are requested, however i have never made a donation in 8 years.

I have recently been using "defraggler" another program from the same source. So far no problems with that either.

@dadpad,
I have now been looking over the website and seeing what they offer. Makes me nervous because if it removes just one thing I need then I am not savvy enough to get it back and then my pc starts experiencing error messages. But I am reading and checking on this. Thanks for your reply dad.

Phillis you can download the program, open it and look at the things it will remove at the default settings so you can have a good look before using the program.
The program will not remove items until you tell it to.
It will analyse but not clean and give you a list of what will be removed.
Obviously your computer needs will be different to mine but the program will not remove anything I have ever needed except the list of recently used documents. Note it does not remove the documents just the list of what has been used recently.

I suggest you downlaod it, open it and have a look around. click on the cleaner tab
two options are available. windows and applications. If you are concerned about losing things uncheck everything except those that you know you want to remove. Such as temporary internet files and windows temp files.
