When setting options to delete all browser cookies and files  automaticlay when closeing the browser.

Does this only affect IE or is it carried over to all browsers being used?

Those settings apply to IE alone.

Each browser has its own settings. Though the last time I checked Google Chrome doesn't have an

auto setting for deleting its cached files.

 

You can use a program such as CCleaner to clean not only the browser caches and cookies but other

caches, logs, cookies in other locations such as Flash and DOM storage.

 

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

I was pretty shure it was only for IE but thought I would ask.

Actually I recently re-installed Ccleaner and ran it. It found 1.87MB of files to clean which prompted my post.

 

Normally Internet options is set to automatically empty cache etc at browser closeing, something had changed that setting.

The majority of files found were for IE 11.

 

I need to do some further checking.

A tool like Privazer will give you a more n depth cleaning; you can use a tool like this once a week.

I have been using CCleaner to do this automatically for years.
