Is there anything that stops the temp internet files from being deleted. My friend is running WIN 98se and can't delete these files for some reason.

He went in manually to do it and that still did not work. Pc just slowed to a crawl.

Any suggestions.

have him go in from dos and delete these files.

Shut computer down to Dos, then type as follows

CD tempor~1\content.ie5 THEN press enter
it should then show the above depending on what IE he is using mine is IE6

at WINDOWS\TEMPOR~1\CONTENT.IE5\type DEL INDEX.DAT and press enter.

then type exit to return to WINDOWS

The above options work but its easier to boot into safe mode (hit F8 whilst booting up) and delete the files.

I used to use Ebuyer just over a year ago.Having traded with them for six months, Totally **ssed off with there customer care and service. Now i just don't deal with that company anymore.

Better companies can be found on the net.
