Unable to Delete Temp Internet Folder Contents

  imindoors 18:12 26 Mar 2003

Suddenly Unable to Delete contents of Temporary Internet folder. Individually or by Selecting All through Edit.

Have run AVG Virus check and Add Aware looking for any Viruse's.

Have made no changes to Configuration.
Only difference from normal use, was a succesfull Google search for my daughters collage website.

Running Win XP Home – 400W PSU – 1.4GH AMD Athlone – ABIT KG7-RAID MB - 512 MB S-DDR Ram – Weston Digital 40GB Master & 20GB Slave HDD’s - 64Mb DDR Radion Graphics – Creative Audigy Platinum Sound Card – Flatron 795ft Plus Monitor.

Any help and/or Advice would be gratefully Recieved to clear up this problem.

There is about 60 files involved.

Tools > Internet Options... > Delete Files > Click "OK" > Does that work?

If no...

When your computer is starting keep tapping the F8 key, Now select SAFE MODE.

The file should delete in safe mode.
