Solved Deleting Temporary Internet Files through Group Policy

September 9, 2012 at 14:45:39
Specs: Windows Server 2003
I have a domain controller running on Windows 2008 Server R2 and users login to application servers on which Windows 2003 Server SP2 is installed. I have applied a Group Policy to clean temporary internet files on exit i.e to delete all temporary internet files when users close the browser. But the group policy doesn't seem to work as user profile size keeps on increasing and the major space is occupied by temporary internet files therefore increasing the disk usage. How can i enforce automatic deletion of temporary internet files?

Well, if the option's turned on and not working, MS suggests working on your anti-virus.

I personally see three options:
1) Ignore it. Is it really an issue? The going rate for a marketing-style gigabyte is $0.03. Does the combined total of temporary files cost even a quarter dollar?
2) Follow MS' suggestions, and tweak / get a better anti-virus.
3) Write a logoff script that deletes temporary files.
