I just noticed mine is over 7gb large. Is there any way to shrink this? Anyone else's this bloated?

 

Thanks

Just clear Temporary Internet Files from Disk Cleanup or use third party tool like CCleaner or Bleachbit.

 

Open RUN using Windows Key + R, type "cleanmgr" without quotes and select Operating System driver and tick Temporary Internet Files to clean cache.

Tried this, but temp says only 81mb there. where is that 7-8gb I am seeing under INetcache?

Can you show me your Startup program? 

 

If you are using Windows 8+ then you can do it through opening Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) and open "Startup" tab.

 

If you are usin Windows 7 or below then you can do it through using RUN and type msconfig and open "Startup" tab.

 

Take screenshot using Alt+PrintScr or use snipping tools present in Windows 7 onward.

 

EDIT: If you wanna see folder yourself, you have to untick this option in Folder Option.

Are you on Windows 8.1 Update 1? Looking online, I see indications that earlier versions of 8 accumulate data from some streaming apps to the degree that the INetCache folder balloons to an alarming size.

Precise location of INETCache folder so we can see whether its due to Metro Apps or Internet Explorer?
