Removing Temporary Internet Files, History, Cookies and Temp Files
What I do is I have these few lines of code in my Autoexec.bat file (this file is accessed during boot up) that automatically delete both these files when I turn the computer on. To use this method simply cut and paste this code into your Autoexec.bat file :
IF EXIST C:\WINDOWS\SMARTDRV.EXE C:\WINDOWS\SMARTDRV.EXE 2048 16
IF EXIST C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\*.* DELTREE /Y C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\*.* > NUL
IF EXIST C:\WINDOWS\COOKIES\*.* DELTREE /Y C:\WINDOWS\COOKIES\*.* > NUL
IF EXIST C:\WINDOWS\RECENT\*.* DELTREE /Y C:\WINDOWS\RECENT\*.* > NUL
IF EXIST C:\WINDOWS\HISTORY\*.* DELTREE /Y C:\WINDOWS\HISTORY\*.* > NUL
IF EXIST C:\WINDOWS\TEMPOR~1\*.* DELTREE /Y C:\WINDOWS\TEMPOR~1\*.* > NUL
To edit your Autoexec.bat file to add this code go to Start/Find type Autoexec.bat in the search box and then right click on the file once it has been found and click on Edit. If you only want to delete these files every now and again remove the code after one full boot up and everything will return to normal when you reboot.
Alternatively you can download these lines of code in the form of a *.TXT file from Cyber Tech Help Downloads Section clean.zip. Once you have the file simply extract it using your favourite zip utility and cut'n'paste the code from CLEAN.TXT into your AUTOEXEC.BAT file which you will find in your C:\ directory then reboot for it to take effect.
