Browser Cache Spring Cleaning!

by on Apr.24, 2005, under Windows Info

Okay. It’s time to clean out your web browser’s cache. Not sure what that means? Then you desperately need to follow and use this information.
(for your network administrator’s sanity)
No, you don’t need to close anything, just do this:
Open your “Control Panel”
Double-click on “Internet Options”
Click the “Settings” button found on the “General” tab under the heading “Temporary Internet Files”
Click the “View Objects” button
**Or, you can just click “Start”, “Run”, and put this in the box:
explorer “C:WINDOWSDownloaded Program Files” (and click “OK”)
After the Downloaded Programs folder opens, make sure you’re using “Details” mode to view the folder’s contents. To do this, Click on the “View” menu at the top of the Downloaded Programs folder , and select “Details”
Anything you find in this folder listed as “Damaged” or “Unknown” NEEDS TO BE REMOVED. To remove them, right-click on each damaged or unknown item and select “remove”.
If you found anything that needed to be removed, you should now run Lavasoft’s Ad-Aware, previously mentioned on this site. (you could try out the search box top right…)
