    I would like for someone to create a line for me in which I am getting synthax errors for. At system start-up I am moving all desktop files to folder 1 as seen here:
    move "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\*.*" c:\folder1

    But am having troubles creating a line to move internet cookies to the recycling bin and possibly the internet history to the bin as well (during start-up). I don't know the path names.
    This is in windows XP Can someone hook it up? Shouldn't be too hard but I kinda suck.

    cookies are located under C:\Documents and Settings\User_Name\Cookies

    and history is C:\Documents and Settings\User_Name\Local Settings\History

    and don't forget the temporary internet files under: C:\Documents and Settings\User_Name\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

    So now that you know the paths to those files, if you don't want to copy them then insert
    Code:
    delete path\*.*
    before you previous copy for each subdirectory and that should do it. Replace path with the actual path you want. I mean they won't be in the recycle bin but they will be deleted which is they whole point of moving them to the RB no?

    Hope that helps.

    Then instead of doing that, go and download TweakUI and set up the Paranoia tab.

    Yeah there are programs that can do that. IE also deletes history and all that. Window Washer, etc...lots of garbage apps for the paranoid.

    C:\
    cd path_name\folder
    copy *.* C:\folder1
