    Under the C drive - under Windows there is a folder "Temporary Internet
    Files". I have a sub folder marked Content IE 5 which has a number of
    sub
    folders. I tried deleting them but they keep coming back. I notice
    there
    is a file Index.dat which can not be deleted and it seems that after I
    shut down and boot up all the sub folders are there.

    Where are these folder from??? How can I get rid of them.
    Changed SPAN settings in sig a YEAR after it was removed

    You dont have to delete that stuff, that is the place your internet browser stores things. If you want to clean it out once in a while, use Windows Washer.

    if you dont have window washer, and IMO, dont really need,
    open your browser and select tools>internet options>and then hit 'delete cookies'
    and 'delete files' and even 'clear history' if ya want

    sorry, this is of course in IE6, dont know about opera, mozilla, etc.
    in those cases you can do a simple disc clean up and select the temporary internet files, etc. and it should take care of it
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    It sounds like you should check out Steven Gould's Cleanup!.
    It's a nice little piece of freeware that I've been using for quite a while now.

    Cleanup! clears your browser cache and recently accessed files history, deletes all your temp files, cleans that index.dat and will even clear the high scores in solitaire and minesweeper if you want.

    These folders are protected by windows, so you cannot delete them. The contents can be removed so many different way, you prob. have some software installed without realising that does it easier than manually clearing through the control panel.

    well, you CAN delete the folders, but as stated they will come back.

    this post is guaranteed 100% parrot-free

    you can get rid of it, the only way to not have it come back is dont browse the net anymore
    run a disc cleanup, then see if the file is there anymore, for me its not
    but windows will build another as soon as you start surfin again

    I think even if you browse pics on your local directory you will get these folders returning, so not just browsing the net.
