Symptom

You want to use less disk space.

Cause

The temporary internet files of the Internet Explorer should not be saved.

Solution

Normaly when you close the Internet explorer the temporary internet files are beeing saved. If you want to deaktivate this feature you have to change a registry key. You have to search for the registry key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Cache". Under this key there has to been the entry "Persistent". If you change this value to 0, the temporary internet files won't be saved if the Internet Explorer is closed.
