    The best i know is use one the programs from above. Get one that will fix the .dat files. I also keep a shortcut to the temp and cookie folders on my desktop. I open them once a week and clean them out.

    Or you can set your IE options to block most of this stuff, but then it is a pain to surf.

    They are usually in C:\windows\temp internet files.

    Why not write a little batch file to do the job for you, and set it as a system task to run on startup..

    as simple as writesomething like this in notepad

    cd C:\windows\temp internet files\
    del *.tmp

    then save it as \anywhere_you_want\cleanup.bat

    either run it from a command line, or add it to your startup list.

    Before we get lots of blah blah blah.. it's an old and free way to handle deleting junk files. DOS has lots of neat little commands which have been forgotten, and the ability to make really quite complex functions, and apply them automatically.

    You can learn all about this here http://www.allenware.com/icsw/icswidx.htm
    It is a very useful skill, and I'm sure you will learn lots of other neat tricks to play with it.
