Hi, the simple solution is to Delete the folder and contents - they are Temp anyway, and if needed by any program will be picked up again as necessary.


Cheers.

hi technotiger, thanks for answering, i repeatedly delete the folder and it always appears again full of random internet pictures and weird symbols. what can i do?

Have you tried deleting Temp Cookies and Files/Folders in IE. Tools>InternetOptions>

Cheers.

You could also go to C:/WINDOWS/Temp and delete what is in there - don't worry, it will not let you delete anything essential, it may simply say cannot delete 'such&such', but delete the rest anyway.

yes, it doesnt delete them.

Internet Explorer, Tools, Internet Options, General tab, Settings button, Move folder button

and move the folder back to C:\temporary internet files
