Run your PC like a pro!

 

Empty TEMP folder on startup:#When this option is enabled Windows automatically deletes the contents of the TEMP folder when you power up or restart the system.

 

This is useful for two reasons: It can help to stop data garbage collecting in the TEMP folder and it can also improve security, as the folder may sometimes contain data you don't want unauthorized people to see.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE:

This command automatically uses the folder defined by the TEMP environment variable, which is generally not \\WINNT\TEMP, even though this folder usually exists. Before activating this function please check which folder your TEMP variable points to (enter "set" in the command prompt console) and make sure that it does not contain any files you want to keep.

When this option is activated your cookies are automatically deleted when Windows starts.

Delete temporary Internet files

With the last option you can be freed from temp net files. When this option is activated all your temporary Internet files are automatically deleted when Windows starts. NOTE: This also deletes any offline content you may have stored with Interrnet Explorer's "Make available offline" option.
