Windows 7 Temporary Internet Files

Ever since I have Windows 7 I noticed that thousands of temporary internet files are being created. In particular I noticed a true epidemy of random .kmz files, none of them actually haing been used by me.
Is there a cure?

You can cleanup temporary internet files with the inbuilt disk cleaner or a 3rd party tool like CCleaner. CCleaner can be scheduled to clean up automatically too.

.kmz files are zipped files used by google earth.
