    If you are using Internet explorer, click on Tools at the top, then internet options, on the pop up window that shows up there should be a delete cookies, delete files and near the bottom a clear history button. I would suggest all 3. this cleans your cache (pronounced cash) right out. The cache is the storage of all cookies and pages you'v'e viewed on the internet.
    a word of warning though, when you clear your cookies, you may have to re enter passwords and user names for some sites you've been to.

    Just the question that was on mind recently. Although I knew how to do it previously, I forgot how to now. Thanks Gabriel and mkwood.

    I'm going to use this if I'm on a public computer.

    Is this something we should do regularly?

    Not unless you are either:

    1) Paranoid, or
    2) Sharing a computer with someone you'd rather didn't know what websites you were on

    In Run, type in COOKIES
    hit OK
    go to Edit
    Select All
    go to File
    Select Delete or just press the delete button on keyboard.

    It actually helps your computer run faster if you delete cookies and other non important stuff every so often. Cookies, temp files, history... all that takes up space on your comp and can slow it down.
