That will delete most, but not all of the "loose cache" that XP holds onto for various reasons. You can download CCleaner for free and it will eliminate the unwanted cache files or you can do it yourself. Go to C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Cookies and delete all of them. Remember, that any...

And so it goes...

Actually, and so I go. Due to the current circumstances I find myself in, I have decided to "retire" from this fine board as Lead Moderator. I just will not have the time to dedicate to doing the job that I have been and needs doing here. Just shy of my seventh anniversary here, and I must say it's ...

Does deleting stuff this way actually give you more space on your computer? I know if you delete something once it makes that space available on your HD, but since its still there (recoverable), how does that work? How does it still hold a place on the computer, but not take up room? Can you ever C...

If does, then you need to look at the BIOS for the motherboard. Is it the most...
