After running CCleaner a couple of times to clear all files, when I close and reopen it, there seems to be two files that are constantly replenished

Internet Explorer - Temporary Internet Files 1 KB 1 files
Windows Explorer - Thumbnail Cache 2.055 KB 12 files

The one that concerns me is Internet Explorer. I have removed IE from my computer, so it should not be making temporary files, should it?

C:\Users\JJJ\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\LFGBASV8\auto[1].htm    1 KB

May 26 I noted the same
C:\Users\JoAnn\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\2XDKBO2P\auto[1].htm    1 KB

Is this something I should be concerned about?


thank you in advance.

You cannot remove IE, it's an integral part of Windows.  You can choose not to use it, but you cannot remove it.


Google Links.


Those files are valid for your Windows install, there is no reason to be concerned about such.
