    I would like to set the default amount of disk space used for temporary
    internet files for all new user accounts that log on to a PC. How can I do
    this?

    Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2;
    Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2) as well as your IE version when posting in an
    IE-specific forum or newsgroup. Please do so in your next reply.

    Does each user have their own Windows User Account/Profile?

    The OS is XP with SP3. Each user will have an active directory account which
    creates a profile folder on the PC.

    IE doesn't really enforce a strict limit and tends to be buggy in this
    regard anyway. In order to provide what you may be looking for you could
    use a third-party tool called CacheSentry. I'm not sure what its current
    state is. I used it with IE5 and IE6 only. I will be surprised if it has
    been updated to work with the new double TIF in Vista. Otherwise when you
    find that the TIF is growing too big you can always just kill the whole
    directory either from another administrative level account or from another
    partition and IE will start a new TIF the next time that user needs it.
    Trying to use the Internet Options UI to control the size of the TIF has
    always been problematical; that's why CacheSentry was created and used.

    You could accomplish your objective via IEAK 7 and/or an Admin Template (AKA
    Group Policy or GPO).
