    What's the best tool for cleaning my temp directory's?

    I think they're looking a bit huge. I can't remember where the setting was to change the size of disk space it is allowed to use up.

    Thanks, Sam

    of course - AdAware & Registry Mechanic are a must have. I also like Spybot S&D, and Ewido. Ive been using Mcafee Virus scan also. This is an ongoing tossup between Mcafee and Norton.....just depends on personal pref. I suppose. For now these seem to be doing a fine job.

    System temp files or internet cache?
    AFAIK you can't set a limit for the system temporary directories, but you can easily explore your way to "C:\WINDOWS\TEMP" and "C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temp" to delete them manually... you won't be able to anything that's in use so it's quite safe.
    To set Internet Explorer's cache limit, go to Control Panel, open Internet Options and click the Settings button in the middle section.
    if your font size is this small i'll add you to my ignore list because you're wasting my time, OK?

    Copy this into Notepad and name it clean.bat. Save it to the root of your C: drive (ie. c:\clean.bat). Or click here to download it already put together.

    c:\windows\smartdrv.exe
    deltree /y c:\windows\tempor~1
    deltree /y c:\windows\temp
    deltree /y c:\windows\tmp
    deltree /y c:\windows\ff*.tmp
    deltree /y c:\windows\history
    deltree /y c:\windows\cookies
    deltree /y c:\windows\recent
    deltree /y c:\windows\spool\printers
    del c:\WIN386.SWP
    exit
