Java deployment cache, XP

Default deployment cache is
C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\ 
which is right in the middle of my XP profile space...
So, every time I do something java-ish, it'll eat up loads of space, and I get XP profile warnings.
Change location in control panel / Java, to somewhere not in profile space.  Delete old space using that panel too.
(to be honest, i'm sure it reset itself to Application Data when I wasn't looking...)

To stop Java from storing cache files in your profile, open the Java Control panel (should be found in the normal control panel place), then under 'Temporary Internet Files', 'Settings' on the first tab, untick the 'Keep temporary files on my computer'

Alternatively you can change the location of where they are stored, or click Delete Files, to clear down your existing cache.
