Cleaning temporary Internet files in Internet Explorer
This article explains what you can do if malware is found in the Temporary Internet files folder.
Malware found in Temporary Internet files
The Temporary Internet files folder on Microsoft Windows computer systems contains files - such as images, HTML pages, executable and script files - that Internet Explorer has downloaded from websites visited by the user. Sometimes the F-Secure product may detect viruses and adware inside the folder.
In Windows XP, the folder is located here:
C:\Documents and Settings\<user_name>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5 Note: If you only have one user account on Windows XP, use Administrator as the username.
In Windows Vista and 7, the folder is located here:
C:\Users\<user_name>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5
C:\Users\<user_name>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low\Content.IE5
