Those files are the files cached by Internet Explorer.  Each time you use 
IE to visit a
web page IE caches that page so it loads faster next time.  Over time the 
cache can
grow quite large.  This causes slow logons and logoffs as the info is 
copied to/from
the server.  To disable the cache check out these Microsoft Knowledge Base

I hope this helps.
