My computer is running windows 98 and has a 20 gig hard drive. It has been running extremely slow lately, almost unusable. I ran norton and trend micro virus software, both came back clean. I also ran adaware.
While running my virus software, I noticed it took a VERY long time scanning a folder under windows local settings, temporary interenet files. When I right clicked on it under properties, it told me it was using over 9 GB (almost half of my hard drive) but all that I can see in it is a few cookies. I deleted what I saw but that didn't help. What could be going on and how do I fix it? I deleted temp files through IE but that didn't do anything to this folder.
