  1. In "Properties" my Temp Internet Files folder says I have 347 folders (this increases daily). I cannot see them in Explore. So I cannot delete them.

    I've tried using Tools to show hidden files. I tried Safe Mode and logging in as an adminstrator and some other things.

    I would appreciate any suggestions you can offer.

    "Invisible Folders"

    Thanks for the lightning fast response. I am using a dial-up connection so downloading the file you suggested will take a while.

    But I am curious to know why I can't see those folders.
