I have manually deleted (Shift+Delete) all the files present in Temporary internet files folder. But, it is still occupying 100 MB. Can somebody let me know how to free up this space?

Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Clean Up.
There will be options to delete the Temporary Internet file and many others that are not needed. Also, restart your computer once manually deleting files.

GO to Temporary Internet Files Folder > Click on Tool menu > Select Folder Option > Go to View tab > Select "Hidden files and folder" and Uncheck "Hide protected operating system files". U will see all hidden files. Select and delete those files.

Since, I didn't want to install a software to cleanup the files, I followed JayBeez's suggestion and it worked out. There were other files in Temporary internet files folder that didn't showup when you navigate to the directory manually.

Thats good, or use group policy to delete temp file automatically.

I dont think therz any group policy concept in WinXP. Guess you are talking abt Active Directory.
