There's more than one way.

From IE itself:
Tools > Internet Options > General tab > Settings button (under Browsing history) > View files button.

From the system, follow this path:
"C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files"
(you might have to show hidden files and folders on XP - can't remember).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I'm assuming you mean temporary files. It will depend on which program created the temporary files and why did it create them. Usually temporary files are deleted when the program closes. If the program crashed and left them behind, what program was it that made the files?

If the programme crashed and left them behind you can safely delete temporary files. If you cannot delete them it is probably because they are still in use by some running process.or application. Windows will not allow you to delete a file that is in use. Windows itself creates a lot of temporary files.

As for viewing them, it is unlikely you would make much sense of them. As THX says, it depends on what created them and for what purpose.

Did you try doing a search? Temp files are in the Temp folder. Temporary Internet Files are in the Temporary Internet Files folder. See how it works? Try using Start > Search.
