how to delete the temp internet files

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Does any one know how to clear the Temporary Internet Files using AutoIT?

These are not files, but links to files?

Thanks,

JC

This may not be the best way, but works.

$StageFlags = 'StateFlags0100'
$loop = 0
$RegRootkey = 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\VolumeCaches'

While 1
    $loop += 1
    $Regkey = RegEnumKey($RegRootkey,$loop)
    If @error <> 0 then ExitLoop
    If $Regkey = 'Internet Cache Files' Then 
        RegWrite($RegRootkey & '\' & $Regkey, $StageFlags, 'REG_DWORD', 2)
    Else
        RegWrite($RegRootkey & '\' & $Regkey, $StageFlags, 'REG_DWORD', 0)
    EndIf
    ConsoleWrite('Registry Key : ' & $Regkey & @LF)
WEnd

RunWait('cleanmgr.exe /sagerun:100')
$loop = 0
While 1
    $loop += 1
    $Regkey = RegEnumKey($RegRootkey,$loop)
    If @error <> 0 then ExitLoop
    RegDelete($RegRootkey & '\' & $Regkey, $StageFlags)
WEnd

Or...

You can convert this ScriptingGuys script to AutoIt.

Const TEMPORARY_INTERNET_FILES = &H20&

Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace(TEMPORARY_INTERNET_FILES)
Set objFolderItem = objFolder.Self
strPath = objFolderItem.Path & "\*.*"

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
objFSO.DeleteFile(strPath)
