Hi...seem to have a problem with Temporary Internet Files....

Using IE7 and CCleaner....(Crap Caleaner)....I typically use CCleaner to clean things up at the end of the day, it seems to do that OK...but have recently noticed this.... if I then open IE again immediately and go to just 1 or 2 sites (Google News etc) and then run CCleaner again there may be over 100 temporary interenet files that it will find. On an almost identical computer with the same Tools -- Internet Options settings.... all settings the same ....I do not get the huge number of temp files as the above sceneario...perhaps only 2 to 3 or so temp files show there after going to several sites after cleaning with CCleaner.....

The extrea temp files I am getting typically look like this....

CLEANING COMPLETE - (0.684 secs)
0.72MB removed.

Details of files deleted
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\345DT2Q9\chronspecialreports160x14[1].gif 581 bytes
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\UZC7S1L2\mediapartners[1].gif 481 bytes
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\EYBL21YS\blackdot5x7[1].gif 49 bytes

Any suggestions on what is going on and how to fix (or is a fix necessary ??) would be much appreciated....

There are all kinds of possibilities.

IE 's technology is not only used by IE Browser itself, but many other applications use it in embedded form. For example, Norton Antivirus and MSDN library. The files these applications open in the embedded IE, also get stored in the Temporary Internet Files folder.

Check for any application that you are not running on the second computer.
