    Sorry for all the posts, but I'm trying to clean my system up.

    This problem concerns the folder Windows\Temp InternetFiles\Content.IE5

    Within that subfolder are the following subfolders:

    Each one of those folders is filled with all kinds of crap (excuse my
    language). jpg files, gif files, 24Mb worth all told. I launched a few
    and they're pictures that are meaningless to me. Is that stuff all
    necessary? Can I clean it all out? Thanks.

    Delete them.
    This can also be done from IE, under Options.

    Just go to Control Panel | Internet Options, click Delete Files, and then choose
    Include all offline files"
    See how quickly and simply you can achieve your goal.

    Tried both ways through IE Options and also in Control Panel, and
    neither was deleted any files from those folders.

    Did you choose the option to "Include all offline files"?

    If the "delete all offline" box being checked as suggested by another
    responder doesn't work, I have seen it suggested going in with windows
    explorer, select the sub-dirs and hitting the delete key... but I haven't
    every tried it... so I can't swear it works or that it won't cause your OS
    some kind of heartburn.
