I was checking my pc for any potential virus, when I noticed the checker
spent a lot of time in a temp internet folder in my local settings...

Even though, my folder setup is to show all hidden folders, this one has
always remained hidden, unless I type in directly to access it, it has got
quite large now...

its location is C:\Documents and Settings\Charles\Local Settings\Temporary
Internet Files\Content.IE5


anytime I previously made more space on C: by deleting temp files etc that
were shown in the selector, this folder has never come up....

can I simply manually delete its contents which consists of 32 folders & 1
index file or is there a standard procedure...


most of the folders appear empty but 'D3M2USH9' is 1.22 gb in size....

I am a little dubious about manually deleting it as XP has had it hidden
from any normal viewing....

You can safely delete everything in that folder.

Yes. To do it correctly...

To delete *all* Temporary Internet Files...

1) Start | Run | Type: inetcpl.cpl | OK
Or right click the Internet Explorer icon on your Desktop.
Or: Start | Settings | Control Panel | Internet Options.
Best to do this with all instances of Internet Explorer closed. Especially
if there are a large number of files.
2) On the General Tab, in the middle of the screen, click on Delete Files
3) Check the box ? Delete all offline content {This cleans >>
%homepath%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
AND
%homepath%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5
and \Content.MSO (Created by an MS Office program)}
4) Click on OK and wait for the hourglass icon to stop after it deletes the
temporary internet files
5) You can now click on Delete Cookies and click OK to delete cookies that
websites have placed on your hard drive.
-----

If you want, try this: Open IE | Tools | Internet Options | Advanced tab |
scroll down to the bottom | check: Empty Temporary Internet Files folder
when browser is closed | click Apply | OK. Entirely up to you, but if you
want to be rid of this, it is done automatically. Deletes the content of
%homepath%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet
Files but not the Content.IE5 or Content.MSO folders.

Hi Wes...

I have stuck a copy on my desktop to remind me in future :D 

It certainly done the trick....

I was always under the impression that when I made space on C: by doing a
'disk cleanup' & clearing the temp internet files, that was it...

Now I know different....

Cheers again.... :D

Charles,

I do not know why this is, but...

Disk Cleanup (cleanmgr.exe) *will* clean:
%homepath%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

Disk Cleanup (cleanmgr.exe) will *not* clean:
%homepath%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

Maybe it has something to do with Disk Cleanup not knowing if someone
actually uses Offline Files.

That's just not true. There are no files in %homepath%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files so they won't be cleaned as there is nothing to clean. All files are in sub folders of content.ie5. So it does clean content.ie5 but only files that should be cleaned. If IE didn't put them there then it won't remove them. IE considers it put them there if it sucessfully downloaded them (if a user clicks cancel then it won't sucessfully download). Offline Files are also not cleaned. Nor OE temp files.
