At the top of the IE window you should see "Tools."
Click it, and select "Internet Options."
It should open a menu with the "General" tab on top.
The top section would be where you could change your home page. Don't worry about it for now - but I use mudcat.
The second section should be "Temporary Internet Files" and there will be a "Delete Files" and a "Settings" button.
Click the "Delete Files." (This won't remove your cookie.)
When it asks "are you sure" say Yes.
Then in the third section - "History," click the "Clear History" button, and when it argues with you tell it "yes- delete."
This should do a pretty thorough job of getting rid of trash in your temp files.
When you have finished this, "OK" to close the window, and I would suggest you reboot.
Click the "Start" button and select "Shut Down" at the bottom of the menu. You can choose "Restart" on the next menu, but I would recommend you choose "Shut Down."
When the machine shuts down, give it a good minute or two for the drives to coast down and for residuals in the ram to settle. Then turn back on, hook back up and come back.
