    In the interests of hygiene I have all my Internet stuff on a separate partition. Infact I try & keep C:\ for just the system.

    To that effect I used Internet Tools to move the temp files along with the history file to a separate partition.

    However for some reason cookies & history items are now appearing in the old locations on the C:\ drive...

    because IE still thinks they are on F:\ these files seem impossible to delete.


    eh? Why did they change location? Is there a registry change I can make to prevent the history & temp internet files folders appearing on c:\ at all?

    OK see how this goes. Remember what you do incase you have to change it back. Make sure that according to IE the folders are where you want them. Now go to those other folders where the file are ending up. Right click on the folder & select cut. Now go to where IE says they should be & paste it there. Do that for however many folders are giving trouble. Cut & paste.
