Windows Picture and Fax Viewer

Guest

I received an e-mail with a picture attached. When I clicked to open the document, it opened it using "Windows Picture and Fax viewer". Then I clicked to "Print" the picture and was taken to the "Photo Printing Wizard". When this opened, there were several hundred "still" photos from Websites I've been to select along with the photo in my e-mail

These other "photos" were somehow saved, against my knowledge, in the "Photo Printing Wizard" (or "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer". How do I delete them? How do I find the cache of photos stored in the "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer" or "Photo Printing Wizard"

These seem like privacy issues. Is Microsoft keeping a footprint of everything I do on this computer?

Nope...it's not some diabolical plot to invade
your privacy. The files you see are in your
Temporary Internet Files Folder. The images
must be downloaded from the net to your
hard drive before you can view them.
