Hi there TxRunner2003

For the cookies read here.

For the temporary internet files read here.

Those sites are off the Yahoo browser help page - you can only get he infomation out of them by emailing it your Yahoo email address. Does this help at all? If not i have some alternatives.

Set your history to 0 in inetnet options. Or just run cCleaner and set it to clean out your cookies and history at boot.

You can also use Windows disk cleanup utility to clean out your temp files. Remember, though, that some cookies are actually useful. Yahoo, for example, sets cookies for your user ID and so it can remember your home page, etc. The NYT also sets a cookie for your member ID, and Borders sets one that remembers the three closest stores to your house.
Use an anti-spyware application, like Ad-AwareSE, to delete only the bad cookies, and from time to time, manually review what is left.

Regards,
John

If you lower it, the browser will allocate less space for history - therefore less history. If you increase it - more space - more history saved.
