Hi all,
I'm sure this is nothing to worry about, but I was stumbling through the files on my computer and noticed that there are a bazzilion (not a real number) files in this pathway,
"C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\ZKCGKB0M"
What is all this?
Some of ot i recognise from websights I've been to, some of it (pics, for example) I have never seen in my life.
Currently running win XP professional.
Explanations welcomed and appreciated! :thumbsup:

For the most part, these are either graphics you have downloaded, or those found on pages visited. In the latter case, your computer stores these rather than create them each time you visit a site or even backtab to one just visited.
Many browsers will allow you to delete these after each session as user default. You can also use the Windows disk cleanup to delete them.
Cheers,
John
