Clearing the Java Cache on Windows


The reason behind clearing the cache is that the Temporary Internet Files folder contains a kind of travel record of the items you have seen, heard or downloaded from the web such as images, and sounds etc. Storing them makes browsing faster but it also takes up space, which makes the computer run slow.

Clearing the Java Cache in Windows Vista/7 or XP

  1. Select Start in Windows XP or The Start Orb in Windows Vista/7.
  2. Click Control Panel (Make sure you have selected Classic View on the Left side of the window.)
  3. Double-click on the Java icon.
  4. Click on Settings.
  5. Click on Delete Files
  6. Click OK.

You have now cleared the Cache for Java in your system.
