I've just got myself a Dell Inspirion 1520 laptop as a christmas present. Running Windows Vista Home basic. Internet explorer 7. It is used mainly for browsing the internet but I seem to have a problem retaining memory on the hard drive. At the end of each session I will: Tools>internet options>delete history/temp files/passwords/cookies etc. I never seem to get any memory back!!!!! I'm not downloading anything and if I do I take this into account. eg: I will start with 76.6GB but after a few hours when switching it off I will only have 75.4GB despite clearing the history etc and not downloading anything. I know it's not much but if it keeps doing this each time I use it I'm going to run out of space soon! Is the history etc recorded anywhere else and need to be deleted from there as well? Hope you guys have some ideas that will help me get my memory back. Thanks, PQ.
