    Removing Junk Files

    I ran a program that finds temp & Junk files. It also locates zip files . It found some zip files under Java . Do I need these? I don't know what they are for . Never seen them before.

    The .zips & .jars that are in your Java cache folders are things like navigation bars, banners, logos, counters, buttons, etc. that are run by Java and are downloaded and stored there instead of Temporary Internet files like everything else is when you are on the web. When you visit certain sites that use Java applets & such, the page loads quicker when they are already stored. Removing these files from this location will do no harm. It would be similar to dumping the contents that build up in your Temporary Internet files folder. The worst that can happen is the next time you visit a site is it may take as long to download as it did the first time, and as I recall you are using Bb so that would be negotiable. As you surf these to have a tendency to build up. I use two different programs that do the same thing you are talking about and clean that crap out at least every other day.

    Hope that helps!
