    how to find and delete temp files
    I'm all new to the mac world. I want to delete cookies and temp files after surfing. Please help. I'm already getting sick e-mails. It nevered happened with my pc because I would delete all cookies and temp files after most sessions.

    Try Cache Out X:
    http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/9538
    Cache Out X clears out the cache entries on your machine, helping you recover valuable disk space on your machine. Set it to run at startup by placing it in your Login items in your System Preferences. Items removed include the caches in System, Users, and Library, along with the Internet Explorer download cache. Optionally clears the IE's history cache as well.
    For cookie management, try
    Cookie Monster

    Cookie Commander

    or

    heh, nice place to be from, (Norfolk is my home town). Cookies and temp files are not necessarily the cause of spam. If you are using mail.app you should be able to set it up to filter the sick e-mails and deposit them directly to the trash. Keeping cookies under control is a good thing, but there is no need to delete all of them.

    Cool
    I get tried of the "do you want to add three inches, because size does matter" junk. The junk filter works very well. Every now and then some of the junk does slips through.
