Try looking in these places:



C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\index.dat

You can use Ccleaner to delete all your temp files and more,

click here


Tried Ccleaner,Bullgaurd and Win Def they find Temp int files but can't delete as they are in use,I've tried looking in the locations where they should be,but even with "hidden folders" showing I can't find the files not even cookies.

Which Anti-virus are you using? Run it in safe mode.

Am using Bullguard v7.3,tried running it in safe mode, no luck but I still can't get to my Temp internet files or cookies.

So Bullgard identifies the trojan but can`t do anything with it? (Quarantine/Delete/Repair etc.)

Thanks.Got rid of the virus in safe mode at the third attempt but still can't get to to temp int files and cookies where are they in Medion's comp Vista sp1

Try deleting ALL RESTORE POINTS. This can be done as follows:

Control Panel/system and maintenance/backup and restore center/ down the left handside of the window you should see "CREATE A RESTORE POINT OR CHANGE SETTINGS", click this, then continue, next remove the tick that is shown next to the computers hard drive (this is basically the one that will have your operating system on), it will say "ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO TURN SYSTEM RESTORE OFF, ALL EXISTING RESTORE POINTS WILL BE DELETED AND NO OTHERS WILL BE CREATED", click the TURN SYSTEM RESTORE OFF tab, now all the system restore points will be deleted, basically with virus's/trojans, they can sometimes remain in restore points.

Also like mentioned above CCleaner will delete temp int files, I would recommend after doing what I mentioned above, that you then restart your PC, run CCleaner, next you will need to switch SYSTEM RESTORE ON, basically this is done by doing the same procedure as mentioned above (albeit in reverse).

I've now got rid of the virus but I still want to view my Temp int files but I can't get to them.

the only way i know to view them is by using disk cleanup,click on the temp internet files and then click on view files.
