Too many temporary internet files?

    I have over 5,000 Temporary Internet Files...I have deleted Browsing History
    (leaving passwords etc alone). This seems like a lot. Do I need all these?
    Size of cach is set at 252.

    Thanks,

    With 252MB of TIF, 5,000 objects is quite possible.

    Almost nobody needs to have 252MB of TIF. If you have broadband service,
    anywhere from 10MB to 20MB is fine. If you're on dial-up or satelite
    service you could bump it up to 50MB.

    Thanks, I thought so.
    One more thing though...shouldn't they (or at least most of them) be deleted
    when clearing history?

    No, not necessarily. If you want to clear all your temporary internet
    files, you can do so from Tools > Internet Options.

    No, you do not need them. You can safely delete all of the temporary
    internet files each and every time you close Internet Explorer, especially
    if you/ve got a high speed. connection.

    Did you enable the Preserve option for the delete browsing settings?
