Web Client Publishers Temporary Files

By Tiger Catt ·
Disk Clean on XP windows will not delete Web Client Publisher Temporary Files. It went from 32KB to KB 596 it is getting bigger and bigger. How can this be resolved? Help! I might add I tried system restore and safe mode did not help. Thanks for the help in advance.

Disk Cleanup

by Tiger Catt In reply to Web Client Publishers Tem ...

I found the solution here somewhere but cannot locate where in Tech Republic. Go to start>run> type regedit> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT WINDOWS\CURRENT VERSION\EXPLORER VOLUME CACHES\COMPRESS OLD FILES. REMOVE ALL KEYS UNDER COMPRESS OLD FILES. Backup registry first. Restart computer. I had to restart each time I click on the cleanup disk until the KB596 went to KB32. Disk cleanup will not remove the KB32 from the web publisher. Anyone have any advice?

Up date: The Web Client Publishers Temporary Files can be disable: Start-Run- type msconfig- click on Services scroll down to webclient and uncheck. Restart computer. After searching for a long time to see how to delete Web/Client Publisher Temp. Files and was able to do so, it didn't last the large kb return. Disable it takes care of the growing kb however, if you need the service thana don't disable it.
