Hello Do these appear to be functionally accurate if you do not want to store anything; Check delete browsing history on exit>delete>check - temporary internet files, cookies, and history>delete. My goal is to remove cookies and history etc but still be able to function as I browse. I also would like this set up to maintain the browser so i do not have to go to the cookie cache for example to manually empty it.

To simplify things, download and install CCleaner and run it each night just before you turn off the computer or quite for the night. Takes a few seconds to run normally though it may take several minutes the first time.

Just the CCleaner section is what you want to look at.

Yes, I do run Ccleaner periodically. I was asking how to set up explorer 8. I have checked 'delete browsing history on exit' >clicked delete then checked the first 4 boxes so I can keep preferences, like weather in my zip code, yet remove cookies, temp int files and history. I wanted to know if these setttings were accurate or at least functionally correct. I find them hard to understand or which to choose.

That looks correct but only time will tell I'm afraid. I don't use IE so have no experience with it's cleanup ability.

Much of the tme I also use another browser,F.F., but at times I need the explorer or the site won't respond. One of my bank's log ins is set up like that. I will modify settings as I use it, if necessary.
