I delete my history and my temporary internet folders on a daily basis but my empty drive space is continually shrinking. Why????

You say you "delete" these folders -- do you also empty the "Trash"?

You should also check your \Temp folder(s) occasionally and get rid of items no longer needed.

If you get occasional invalid page faults and similar Windows time-bombs, you will need to "scandisk" to be sure you get all the HD space back. A "defrag" will help speed things up.

Hope this helps!
