Most of what you need is already in your browser.

If using Internet Explorer, go to Tools/Internet Options. There you can delete temporary internet files, surfing history, cookies, content stored offline etc.

There are programs available (I use Historykill on one box) but unless you are paranoid the built in facilities are good enough for most people's needs.

I hope it clears more than that list Zayd. Are there other menus items that are not shown on your screen shot?

There is nothing much of any file-size significance there, for example it doesn't clear temporary internet files which can add up to GB if you surf regularly, and it doesn't clear cookies.

It won't wipe out the dreaded index.dat files either, but to be fair the browser won't either and you will need another third party utility or a dos batch file for that.

You might like to try this freebee (http://www.webattack.com/get/3s.html) then.

That will do it alright. Just what the doctor ordered.

I assume you have tried it?

Yes, had it on for a couple of months. Use JV16 now, given "temp files" the folders to clean out and it works OK. The only reason I got rid of it was to "rationalize" the number of programs.
