You (or someone) marked this thread as solved. Does that mean you are no longer bored?

You could try to write software that will clear everything (temp files, cookies, history...) for Internet Explorer 10 and above.

I'll be glad to work with you on it - testing it.

It is harder than it sounds to clear out all of the places that MS stuffs IE data :-(

I thought Oldtimer's 'TempFileCleaner' did this.

I was presenting the OP with a challenge to write a tool that handles more than just temp files.

TFC does not clear the temp files in the DOMStore:

OldTimer probably left those for a reason, but I would remove them.

Also, Process Monitor indicates that TFC does not check or clear
...\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Feeds Cache
and other folders that I would clear. It is all very subjective.

But clearing IE's history is the real challenge here...
...not the low hanging fruit of temp files :-)

I don't know of a tool that clears "everything" with a single run.


To be clear, I don't need such a tool. I have my own script that does what I want it to do. But it seemed like a good challenge for the OP and one that can be educational.

Hi there

Try playing around with Windows 10 Technical preview and some VM software - for example HYPER-V and getting decent USB drivers to work.

Otherwise go down to the pub and enjoy some decent bevs.

Cheers

I thought CCleaner did this. IE and Firefox history is gone when I fire them up after running it. Also, what about check of the box in IE options to delete history upon IE exit?

You just think that IE's history is gone.

I ran the cleaner with the options shown above until there was nothing more to clean. Then I opened the tool that you see in the screenshot atop the CCleaner window.

It does nothing to clear the area where I got the history from for the screenshot shown above.


To be clear, I don't own or wear a tin foil hat...
...but you might want to read this old thread.
