Hi, not a big problem, but every so often I find net video clips start playing jerkily and sometimes freeze for a couple of minutes before continuing, and I have to navigate with a few clicks to clear my browser cache to get them running smoothly again which takes about 4 minutes to clear.
Is there any way I can make my cache clear itself automatically when its getting full, instead of it needing me to go and nanny it?
I'm Win XP Home, not too PC-literate.
PS - I see my 'Max browser cache' is set at 128Mb, shall I leave it at that or set it to another figure?
And just for the record, when the vids go jerky the 'Current cache' size is around the 97Mb mark

Internet options/ advanced tab/ security/ choose empty temporary files when browser closes

You could also install a program such as Ccleaner. It takes seconds to clean up logs, temp files, cookies, etc.
Remove temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. by using Ccleaner. Do not use "Advanced Settings" or the "Issues" button. Use only the default settings. http://www.ccleaner.com/
When installing Ccleaner you will be offered the Yahoo Toolbar. If you don't want it, be sure to UNcheck.
