Old topic reborn with new information

why are my Temporary Internet Files, Cookies and History folders are located in the Temp folder?

This is a consequence of damaged index.dat files. When Internet Explorer cannot read one of the index.dat files from the standard locations, usually C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Local Settings, it will create new folders under the Temp folder. To fix this:

  1. Start -> Control Panel -> Internet Options;
  2. Click the Settings button, then click Move;
  3. Specify some temporary folder, e.g. C:\MyCache;
  4. Click OK, you'll be prompted to logoff and logon again, click Yes (restart Windows manually if not prompted);
  5. After logon open Windows Explorer;
  6. Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\;
  7. Delete Cookies folder;
  8. Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Local Settings;
  9. Delete History and Temporary Internet Files folders;
  10. Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Local Settings\Temp;
  11. Delete History, Cookies and Temporary Internet Files folders;
  12. Start -> Control Panel -> Internet Options;
  13. Click the Settings button, then click Move;
  14. Specify C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Local Settings;
  15. Click Yes when prompted to logoff (restart Windows manually if not prompted).
