A call I have to look in to "Investigate settings to clear down IE temp files and history after each use for canteen PC's in preparation for the Internet ban on these being possibly being lifted." Users will be logging in to the domain. Any help appreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are you using these PC’s on a windows server based domain? if so there should be a GPO, (Group Policy Object), setting to set all users IE temp file space max to whatever you want to set it to, 10,20,30 MB or even less if you want.

There a series of settings in the User configurations section of a group policy that you may want to look into modifying. They are located under User configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer.

Specifically, you might want to turn off offline pages and under this tree mentioned earlier, go to Internet control panel -> Advanced page and set the “Emply Temporary Files folder when browser is closed” to enabled.
