Cache and cookies are bits of information that your computer stores away when you view WW. Each bit of info is saved to your cache and enables you to surf through WW faster. When new stuff comes out you need to clean up.

Your computer saves files and locations etc and when they add a new update your pc holds on to the old stuff. In order to make room for new files, you have to clear it (clean out the old files) and you do that in different but similar ways depending on the browser you are using.

Firefox= Go to TOOLS > CLEAR PRIVATE DATA > Select Cache & Cookies > Click Clear Private Data now Tab.

IE7 = TOOLS > INTERNET OPTIONS > BROWSING HISTORY > Select DELETE > Delete Temp Int. Files & Delete Cookies.

OPERA = TOOLS > DELETE PRIVATE DATA> Select DELETE

Default Re: Cache???

One way I like doing this is with a free program called CCleaner. It does all that Exoteric talked about, along with a few more things, like emptying recycle bins and deleting temp files, etc. If others use the computer, check with them first, however, so you don't eliminate anything someone else may still want.

The reason this is important is that WW and WI are massive sites and they create a lot of these temporary files, according to my dear hubby who does a lot of the clean up for me. If you clean the cache regularly, the programs operate better as there isn't as much old stuff tying up your memory when you are online trying to use it.
