Internet Explorer Temporary Files

While you surf the internet, the web browser keeps a cache containing the pages you already visited. This means that it saves all the contents of the pages you visited, including text and images, to a special folder on your hard-disk which is also called the Internet cache.

Because of this, when you visit a web page again, the browser is able to quickly show you the page because it already has its content in the cache, and doesn't need to get the contents from the web. This internet cache feature helps you browse the web faster. However, someone may examine your internet cache and see what websites and pages you visited, what images you viewed, etc. Another problem is that in time, these pages that are automatically saved will take up a lot of disk space.

The Internet Explorer Temporary Files wizard allows you to examine and delete your internet cache.
