View Full Version : a bug in my cache

11-05-2002, 03:52 AM
Where do I find my internet cache folder in Windows XP? My Norton Cleansweep is unable to clean a 16kb file out of there and I fear it is a malicious file of some sort.

If drilling down to that folder myself doesn't work how else can I delete that file?

Have you tried it?

I don't know where my internet cache folder is.

I don't have XP installed (although I have it in my right jacket pocket, lol and I'm probably going to install it tomorrow) but is it causing you any problems? i.e. system lockup, etc.?

It might be an XP file... do you have any kind of antivirus installed?
One good way to check which works on any windows system is to just start up your computer, hit CTRL+ALT+DEL and see what's running.

If you don't know what certain programs are that are running, find out (google it).

You might also want to install ZoneAlarm. That will generally protect you from trojan horses allowing access to your hard drive since it warns you before any program accesses the internet.
