    help would be greatly appreciated

    i just need some help with my aol...ha aha

    anywayz my browser cashe gets enourmously huge. we are talkin 3 to 6 gig and fast
    i just wondered if anyone knows the fix for this problem
    heres what ive tried i have lowered the size to 1024kb
    and it didnt work its like it does not clear itself out.
    so every time i surf 5 or6 pages it starts to slow my comp
    the size is usually around 80 megs
    but if i leave it alone
    after my session it has gotten to be 6gigs and my system resourses
    go to poop around 33%
    i have 64 megs of ram that gets eaten up quick
    right now with the browser clear its exactly
    77%
    thank you

    What browser are you using? and what version is it?

    coz as everyone know, IE versions prior to 6 keep hidden copies of your cache n stuff for some reason.. I don't know the reason, most likely its just a hideous M$ plot to spy on you....

    Well, for the system slowing down, you may want to increase the size of your page file.. that may help your performance a little bit...

    I'm still looking into the IE issue.. I'm pretty certain its a bug, as A> its ignoring the size on your cache.. B> its swelling up to 6GB...

    I am not sur if this has anything to do with your problem but i give it a shot, just don't quote me on it.

    go to start menu, search/find (depending on your operating sys.) under folder/file name type *.tmp once all the files are found and comp stops searching, empty delete all files that come up. usually just cookies n crap like that. like I said dunno if it'll work but it sometimes works for older machines and operating systems.

    sorry if i'm wrong
