Free-Up Memory in Microsoft Internet Explorer 6
If you install Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 and later decide that you never want to go back to Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x, then you can free up about 10 Mg of disk space by deleting the older IE backup files. These are the files that let you recover your Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x installation.
To delete the files, click Start|Settings|Control Panel. Next, double-click Add/Remove Programs. Then click Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 and Internet Tools. Finally, click Add/Remove|Advanced, and select the option to delete the backup. Note that 10 Mg isn't much space these days. So if you have any doubts at all, just leave the files on your disk.
