Temporary Internet Files

Temporary Internet Files (index.dat)

Cleans up Internet Explorer cache, usually located under C:\Windows\Temporary Interent Files (98/ME) or C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files (XP/2K) folder. The program deletes cached files and also wipes the index.dat file.

Internet Explorer stores images you viewed and pages you visited in the cache. Every future time you visit a web site, Internet Explorer generally does not download a web page or an image again, it just retrieves it from the cache on your hard drive.

You can keep selective entries (files) in the cache. Specify the web sites whose entries you would like to keep using the "Keep selective entries" window.

Browsing History

Cleans up the browsing history and the corresponding index.dat files. The browsing history displays web sites and pages you visited, and is shown in the History pane in Internet Explorer (View -> Explorer Bar -> History).

You can keep selective sites (URLs) in the history. Specify the web sites whose web pages you would like to keep using the "Keep selective URLs" window.

Browsing History
Auto Complete Values

Cleans up the values you entered in edit boxes on web pages. Internet Explorer saves values you enter when filling out forms on web pages. Later, when you fill out a form again, it will display a list of previously entered values.

You can keep selective auto complete values. Specify the names of the values you would like to keep using the "Keep selective values" window. Note that passwords, which Internet Explorer saved for you, are also displayed as auto complete values.

Auto Complete
Typed URLs (Address Bar)

Cleans up the address bar (auto complete list of the address bar). This list displays the URLs you typed in the address bar. Note that to completely clean up the list, you may also need to clean up the Browsing History, since Internet Explorer adds entries to the auto complete list from the Browsing History.

Specify the typed URLs you would like to keep using the "Keep selective URLs" window.

Typed Addresses

Cleans up installed cookies. Web sites can store short pieces of information on your computer called cookies. The cookies are used to help you to automatically login to a web site, remember some settings or track your visits to a web site.

You may want to keep selective cookies to be able to auto login to certain web sites. Use the "Keep selective cookies" window to do that.

Folder for Downloads

Erases the path to the folder where you saved a downloaded file last time. Internet Explorer remembers the path of the folder you used to saved a downloaded file. The next time you click Save in a File Download box, Internet Explorer opens the saved folder.
