Thanks guys,I have increased to 100mb,will see how this goes and increase (as Dave says) if needed.The 'empty temporary internet files when browser is closed' box is un ticked.Will leave it and see what happens.
I have always used Internet Explorer without any major problems so I don't really want to swap to Firefox or Opera.I know members give them both thumbs up but I am quite happy with IE7(at the moment).
Just to add I browse the internet usually 12 hours a day( well not solid,after all I am a man and have chores to do ) :D

Have mine set to the maximum 1024

You can set that higher as I recall... try whacking it up to 2048 or even 4096.

Have mine set to the maximum 1024, but I only have 512mb memory and I never clean out the cache, but thats an old habit from my dial-up days which is unneccessary on broadband really.
If this is the "Temporary Internet" setting, then what you need to be careful of is the size of your HDD.
Setting it too high could fill-up your HDD with temp files resulting in slowing down not only your system but also your surfing on-line.

However, as you mention you have 512mb memory then setting the "Virtual Memory" at one and a half times is quite acceptable.
Although I do believe most people will say to set it at two and a half times.

Just checked 1024 is the highest it will go, but I only have a 30g hard drive. I do use Agent Ransack to search and clear out the files, again a habit from my dial-up days, old desk top only had an 8g drive and there's still 3g spare.
One of the mistakes I made I realise now should have gone for a bigger hard drive, but its not the end of the world its solvable should I need a bigger one. Other than that I'm very pleased with my lappy.

Sorry, I thought you were talking about your temp internet files size.

Sorry, I thought you were talking about your temp internet files size.
I think she is, but I may of confused things earlier when she mentioned how much RAM (512mb) which has no bearing on the size of internet temp files so I thought it was the "Virtual Memory" that is/was being mentioned.

And still confused, but that's not hard to do these days.
