    Temp file deletion (WinXP SP1)

    When I go into Internet Options to delete Temporary Internet Files, The delete files box has a check box "delete all off line content".
    Anyone know of a Reg hack to check this box by default. I always check this and it would handy to skip the check step. <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15>

    Do you use "Offline" to read your webpages?
    If not do not worry about, there will not be anyting to delete.

    Dave,
    No I don't usually read offline pages and it never occured to me that there wasn't anything to delete, but is there still a way to avoid having the box popup and just go ahead and delete?
    I just dislike having unnecessary question boxes coming up like, "Are you sure you want to do this?", "Are you REALLY sure?" etc.

    Remember that all of these "Are you sure you want to do this?", "Are you REALLY sure?" etc, are there to protect you from your self.

    The following is from the help and support of Windows XP and MAY affect the TIF files. This should also affect the deletion of email from Outlook Express and Outlook.

    <font color=red>To prevent delete confirmation messages from appearing
    On the desktop, right-click Recycle Bin, and then click Properties.
    Clear the Display delete confirmation dialog check box.
    Notes

    This setting only applies when you move items to the Recycle Bin. This setting does not apply when you move items from it.
    This setting is unavailable if the Do not move files to the Recycle Bin check box is selected. </font color=red>

    Unless you want to keep them, you could save yourself the problem occurring:

    Tools > Internet options > Advanced >
    and select Empty Temporary Internet files folder when browser is closed.

    Re: Temp file deletion (WinXP SP1)

    Leif,
    I have had that box checked, but it does NOT empty out: documents & settingsBob(my folder)local settingstemporary Internet files.
    After I close the browser and then go back in to that area, the files are still there and not emptied. They do empty when I go to Internet Options and click on the place to empty IE Temp files.

    However, this seems to be a different thing than what I was trying to accomplish in the original post. I also tried DaveA's suggestion in his last post and this also wasn't what I wanted to do.

    It seems like the Reg is the place to do this, I just haven't found it yet. <img src=/S/disappointed.gif border=0 alt=disappointed width=15 height=15>

    Dave,
    See my reply to Leif above. Close but not it. (sometimes, I think I do need protection from myself, but not in this case) <img src=/S/crazy.gif border=0 alt=crazy width=15 height=15>

    I realize it wasn't what you wanted, but mine certainly empties.
    Maybe it is because I am running Pop-Up Stopper?

    Re: Temp file deletion (WinXP SP1)

    Leif,
    I do appreciate your and any other input as always. I not running pop-up stopper bit am running AdSubtract pro which has similar features.
    I also have a few "optimizer utilities" installed that give me MANY different ways to make changes to XP's options and things. ( Tweak XP Pro, Tweak UI, FreshUI, & WinOptimizer, to name a few) I suspect that a setting in one of these might be over-riding the ones built in to XP.
    I will just have to go back into these and look over them to see what may be the cause.

    If you or anyone else thinks of something else, please post it. The help received at the lounge is always appreciated. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>
