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).

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.
