    GPO to restrict IE temp and cookies

    is it possible to set up group policy to restrict IE temp files and cookies
    on users XP workstations? We use roaming profoles and IE temp files and
    cookies make it pretty big. We are in Windows 2003 native forest and domain.
    Plan to upgrade to Windows 2008 in a few month. No plan to upgrade XP yet.

    Thanks.

    Chris,
    IE temp files are not in the roaming profile, and cookies take up very
    little space. You might want to take another look at what is taking up space
    in the roaming profile. Usually it is Application Data, and sometimes you
    can set applications to save in the local settings instead of the
    Application Data folder. Otherwise you can set a quota on the profile.
