The procedure is to Delete files, put a check mark in delete all offline content, click Ok and Ok again. If you go to Settings>View files before you ok out of the Internet Options dialogue box the files will still be there. If you Delete files, put a check mark in delete all offline content, click Ok then Cancel, nothing will be deleted so you need to close the Internet Options box by clicking ok for the files to be removed.

There is also this useful and handy tool called CCleaner (Click for download)

It deletes all of unneeded junk :thumbsup:

Do not run anything under the Issues tab or Applications tab only Windows and be careful which options you choose there and be careful see what you delete first before pressing the delete button
