Specs: Windows XP
I can't find the temporary internet files or the cookies folder. I wanted to go in and delete everything inside both of them because the comp is running a lil slower than normal. So im thinking those folders might be quite full. I even went to the search option in the start menu and tried to search for both folders it cant either one of them. Any help?? i dont have any virus's because Norton scans the computer every day at night time and i check the report and its all clean. Why wouldnt the search option find them?? it always has on all my computers.

It would be easier to just open Internet Explorer, click "tools" and "internet options". First window allows deleting of cookies and temp internet files.

Probably it`s a hidden folder...

Go to My Computer >> Tools >> Folder Options >> "View" Tab >> Check "Show Hidden Files And Folders" >> Press "OK"...

But it`s easier to use IE8 to remove them:

I highly recommend against IE8...stick with IE7. Just download & install CCleaner-Slim & use it regularly.

Went in where you said and the option is already selected to show hidden files and folders. Wasn't even off.

I had IE8 when it came out, and about 5 min after it was installed, i re-installed IE7....I didnt like it. Was causing to many problems for some reason.

You should be using Disk Cleanup off the Accessories/system tools menu to delete unneeded files.
