It seems that on Windows 7 and 8??  There are actually two instances of IE on 64 bit OS variants.  It also appears that the 64 bit when you clear saved internet items on one it does not clear them on the other......  

 

I found a machine that had almost 2 million files and 27K cookies in the 32bit IE space. There was malware on the machine that put it there......  

 

Wonder if anyone else thinks that MS should change the way this works?

MS has Daddy issues... and is having a very hard time keeping its pants up and legs together. Vulnerability after vulnerability are leading to even more... Over-complication and re-organization of code that already works is making it a bastardized nancy OS that has little going for it other than its popularity.

 

So don't just sit there and complain that your machine has more bugs than a $2 whore at a sailors tavern, switch to Linux.

There's a solution to this.

 

Delete Internet Explorer... Then download Chrome, Firefox, Dragon, any browser really is better than IE.

Internet Explorer is embedded into the code of Windows. Not sure if it is in Windows Vista onward but this was the case in XP.

 

If it still is embedded then it will be very difficult to remove. 


It's very hard to imagine all the crazy things that things really are like. 

Electrons act like waves.. no they don't exactly, they act like particles.. no they don't exactly.

Words and ideas can change the world.

Yeah, you're right Darktune. The interface can be deactivated but it can never be uninstalled. The system networking settings are inside.
