    Kill it all to free up space. You will not wreck the computer. The cookies were put there by outside web sites you visited and are not critical to the operation of your machine.

    The safest way to delete cookies and temp files from your computer is doing Disk Cleanup. Click on the start menu, all programs, Accessories, System Tools, then Disc Cleanup. Follow the easy steps and check or uncheck the files you want to delete. Nothing will happen if you check all because the computer knows which files are important and which files are unnecessary.

    No, deleting cookies and temporary internet files will not mess with your computer.

    Most cookies are there to make accessing websites easier to load, since part of the information like media content is already stored on your computer.

    You can get rid of your internet history and cookies to save space on your computer if you want.

    It all depends on your own preferences.

    Cookies and files are entirely different things. Do not delete files unless you don't use or need them. Cookies are used by web sites you visit to track what type of things you are visiting. You can delete them without any harm. Of course, you will get more as you continue to visit sites.

    If you delete your cookies and files in Internet Explorer, it won't cause any harm at all. It's actually better for your computer to delete them on occasion.

    Please be more specific sweetheart : ]

    If you mean clearing the Cache and Cookies and History, it is absolutely safe. If you are deleting random files, make sure it's not used by a program which you need. If you add details I can help more

    No, it wont wreck the computer.

    Yes, it will be noticeable. Because the history will be *EMPTY
