Hi,just did an avg scan and from having 80,000 or so files yesterday,ive now got 100,200 today.I couldnt get radio 2 to play on my pc properly this morning and i ended up,downloading java 5 updates.On the add programmes,it says ive now got 5-3 update,5-9+5-10,update,could this be nearly 20,000 files and can i delete any of the earlier java updates and will my pc work ok if i did this.I did notice that my zone alarm kept popping up and i clicked on to allow this programme,radio 2 has since started working again,im only a learner so yep,im mixed up.Any ideas anyone.
regards ray.

Probably a lot of the files will be internet temp files in the cache from when you have been surfing etc.
Remove these using the I.E tools options and you should see the number reduce.

Yep, I'd try that.

Good old IE behaves very strangely at times when it has a lot of temporary files, like for example View->Source stops working.

I'd delete all the temporary internet files, but leave the cookies (don't press the Delete Cookies button), otherwise sites which used to remember who you are may no longer do so.
