Where does windows store...

I'm advancing a program I made, called DeleteIT!, so that it now cleans up IE activity. Where does windows store all of those files. I know that there is a cookies folder in the profiles and temp internet files, but I also know that isn't all of it. I would like to know where windows keeps:

-all temp internet files (cache)
-all the cookies
-all of the autocomplete word lists

And perhaps if there are functions to access these files with MFC or the Win32 API. Any kind of help would be good, thank you all.

    Some of the possible locations:

    Registry

    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSOFTWAREMicrosoftInternet ExplorerTypedURLs

    HDD
    ---
    WindowsCookiesindex.dat
    WindowsTemporary Internet Files
    WindowsHistoryHistory.IE5
    WindowsLocal SettingsTemporary Internet Files
    WindowsProfilesUSERNAMETemporary Internet FilesContent.IE5
    WindowsProfilesUSERNAMEHistory

    Look at these and below.
    There may be index.dat files in many of these.
    I think they store autocomplete info.
    Unfortunately, I dunno how win manages them,
    but for now that's all I've figured out.
    Hey, if once you've finished your program, let me know! ;)
    Good luck!
