I'm watching this whole business with Foley and this talk about his computer and trying to find child porn on it. First of all, only an idiot would have some, but then this discussion I was listening to led to checking out his files and seeing what he looks at on the internet, etc. My question is quite simple- if your PC supposedly has a record of everything you look at and every picture and every website, etc, doesn't that eventually fill up your memory? If you're someone who surfs a lot, you'll eventually have millions of files, won't you? Clearing your cache supposedly doesn't delete those files. I notice my available capacity seems to go down even though I don't add hardware/software or save files much.

Is this some fucking genius plan by Microsoft to force us to have to buy more memory eventually????

As you can see, m PC knowledge is okay, but not advanced....

No, but if you clear out the cookies, cache, temp folder AND use CCleaner (www.ccleaner.com) you'll get some extra space.

Most likely... The XP swap file is a fuckin' hog at times. :mad:

So....It won't fill up my memory? Or no I can't get rid of it and clear my memory?

By the way I used CC, not bad.

Depends on what internet browser you use. When you say memory I assume hard disk stuff?

I odn't see why Microsoft would care either way whether you bought a bigger hard disk.

Not really following your problem here...

"No", meaning, if you just clear the cache those files will still be there.
