salty, I took your advise and went for the free trial.. And hoping to resolve the listed issues I set a new Restore Point cause there are 5 redundant programs and 3.64 GB of crap I still fail to locate, plus several other issues need to be resolved.

And guess what I ran the "Clean Up" app and found the items then selected to Resolve all..

And it selected the new page BUY ME...

So all I got was a new install of the free trial of Avast which is 1.6 GB on the install and it's FIREWALL, which is nice...

I guess there is free lunches... , and still

Edge Windows 10 has the option that clears everything once you exit.
I like that.

I don't know if previous versions of Windows ever did.
I always went up in the Internet Options with XP and Vista, then had to click the appropriate bar.

they did as you noted. I remember IE 7 my first used browser and I had all of these tips printed out. And that was on the older (always crashing) dang what was before XP?

Even in the new Edge one has to go thru hoops set it to get it to delete history and temp files.
