I have noticed that nothing will show up in my Temp Internet Files main folder(not sub folders-files show up there). It will do this for days then out of the blue 4-5 days or so and the files show up. Does anyone know why this is happening? And how do I remedy it? THANK YOU!!!!!! :tazz:

I have no idea what's wrong with your Temporary Internet Folders.
I don't know how to get rid of this, except delete the files frequently.
You can do that with a programme called 'CleanUp!', you can find the link to download it in the Malware Forum. Go to 'options' and check 'Temporary Internet Files'.
Hope that is of use to you.

How stupid of me!
The option to clean Temporary Internet Files with CleanUp! works a little different than I said, here it is:

Open the programme, go to Options, then go to Temporary Internet Files, and check the box.
CleanUp! will then look for and clean Temp's with the:

~*.*
*.*~
*.bak
*.chk
*.tmp
index.dat

extensions.

Also, don't forget to check the box 'Delete Cookies' in the Options-menu.
Those two things combined will delete most, if not all, your Temporary Internet Files :tazz:
