The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

As you can see I am guilty of not responding asap either ... I had not checked my email for awhile ... family headaches ...
Anyway, my laptop has Vista Home Prem., I used to use IE8 and then upgraded to IE9 and since IE was making my life miserable, I went to Firefox and haven't looked back since. I am currently on latest version 19.0.
My Firefox is set NOT to save anything when I exit ... and I also regularly, sometimes Daily clear my Cache with a little proggie that I found here called "
ATF Cleaner (09-28-11 GeeksToGo).exe" ... as you notice I found it back in 2011 ... and since I have not been ableto find any newer release.
Q: So, could you guide me further or Suggest a Browser Cleaner for both IE and FF to use on a Daily basis?
Thanks for Your Help and this website.

ATF cleaner was designed originally for XP based systems but has been upgraded slightly these days.
I still use it on my XP system, but I removed it and Updated to whatever the current version is.
CCleaner is another option, but I find too many people use the Registry Cleaner section of the program
TFC (Temp File Cleaner) was designed slightly later. It is a "heavier" version of the same thing. However TFC will usually reboot your computer at the end of the cleaning / removal process. So I use it early in the day and not at night
My usual post for TFC is - To clean out your temporary internet files and temp files.
Download TFC by OldTimer from HERE to your desktop.
Double-click the TFC.icon to run it.
Note: If you are running on Vista / Windows7, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator
TFC will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
* Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process.
* Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two.
* Please let TFC run uninterrupted until it is finished.Once TFC is finished it should restart your computer. If it does not, please manually restart the computer yourself to ensure a complete cleaning.
For either issue (Animal will correct me if I am wrong or I have misread it) -
