HI I have a PC quite old now, doesnt run very well. I downloaded some zipped email attachments earlier on and noticed that they were stored in a temporary internet folder, from which I extracted them.

However, I noticed that in the same folders these zipped files got put into, were also loads of pictures which havent been downloaded, such as friends of mine's facebook profile photo, and random other stuff like that - does it seem something is pulling this info and saving it (for whatever reason). Like there was a file in there from earlier today of my mates facebook profile pic. Weird

any help is appreciated :)

If you want to dump your temporary Internet files periodically...with IE open, Tools/Internet Options/General tab...push Delete button under Browsing History section.
