Delete Content.IE5

  1. I noticed that after working with malware for some time that many adware prodcuts are stored in
    C:\...\Documents...\Local...\Temp...\...\Content.IE5

    I saw a similar thread to mine but I have a different question. May I delete every single file in Content.IE5 thus destroy ever possible malware threat that is stored in that folder without any anti-virus scan. Or by doing that I will destroy my Browers or something like that?

    What do you think?

    Yes. Yes you can. Just clear your temporary internet files after disabling any process running from or using files in that area.
