Delete Stubborn Temp Files...??

Hello all --

During my routine cleaning of my drive I noticed:

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

There are a number of folders under Content.IE5 and what looks like images, graphics, etc. from the net. Some I can delete, but some I can highlight, click delete, and nothing happens. On other files in the these folders, I go to delete and the error 'cannot delete, can't find the specified file' pops up -- uh, the file is right there, why can't it delete? :rolleyes:

I tried through a DOS shell and when I go to the Content.IE5 folder, it says no directory exists. /boggle

Are there any programs or anything I can do to forcibly remove these files?

Thanks.

they are your temp internet files, just delete them with the Internet Options from Tools menu in MSIE

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
