Why do you need the file deleted?

What happens when you right click and select delete?

i want to delete it because there is no need of any file to be there in temp internet file after clearing all the files.
if it is not getting deleted then there is some thing wrong.when i tryed deleting it it said "can not delete file.can not read
from the source file or disk"

Some programs like Nero and Avast write files into guest account eventhough it was never used. If there are no problems with the computer just leave it there. If you still want to delete it download Unlocker from my list of programs. Run it, find the file through administrator account, right click and in the menu that opens choose to remove with Unlocker.

i want it deleted because i have noticed that some data on webpages are not getting updated.when i clean it with ATF cleaner then only the pages are getting updated.I cant clean it again and again with ATF cleaner to see the change in pages.I think it is the work of file which is not getting deleted from temporary internet files and folders.what do you say about it.
