IE7- Cookies and TIFs

    I have used IE for a long time and having a lot of TIFs on the computer
    could slow down or crash Windows. Deleting the TIF folder from a commad
    prompt was considered prudent for a while. Besides the logical benefits from
    good general maintenance, is IE (IE 6, 7 or 8) and Windows still vulnerable
    to too many TIFs and/or cookies? If so, about how many is considered to be
    dicey?

    I delete my files and cookies everytime I close IE. There's a setting to do
    this in TOOLS>OPTIONS.

    Set your TIF folder size ("disk space to use") to 100 MB or less and don't
    worry about it.

    Another tip to keep TIF folder from filling up would be to run InPrivate
    browsing mode, which allows IE8 to browse without picking up any TIFs.
    Here is a link to better explain how it works. Also, a link to
    download IE8 if you aren't already running it.

    Thanks for the "limit" tip. When it hits the limit, does it erase existing
    for the new or just ignore the new?

    Regarding IE8, I still prefer the interface of IE6 best so am using IE7 as a
    compromise. I will get to IE8 eventually, but meanwhile, thanks to all for
    the assist.

    In the case of deleting the TIFs upon closing IE, does it cause pages to
    take longer to load or is the lag insignificant?

    A1. When "it hits the limit," the oldest data is overwritten by the new
    data.

    A2. Suit yourself.

    A3. I'd very much doubt it but YMMV.
