Deleting Your Temporary Internet Files

Deleting Your Temporary Internet Files

That’s great, most of the time, but sometimes you may miss valuable updates that may not have been downloaded upon your most recent visit. This is especially applicable with flash interactive websites where your browser ‘caches’ the flash files.
