    Hi all, here's one I haven't seen in the forum before.

    I stumbled upon a folder in Win XP Pro under Doc. & Settings\My Name\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content IE5 that wasn't cleaned out from the Internet Options Delete Files button. So I tried to delete them manually and succeeded by using the wipe info tool in NAV 2003 Pro, for all but a few. The names all start with Premium_Sites, are like 25 words long (pornographic) and are gif images (no preview just the icon), when I try to delete them I get an error message that says "Cannot Find File Specified". After trying Spybot, AdAware, Panda & RAV online virus scans, Safe Mode & a DOS prompt, I tried putting the drive in another computer to delete them from that OS. It seemed to work, I double checked to see the file in the recycle bin, shut down & put it back in my comp. start up and the files were back, and it's gone from the recyc. bin on the other comp, I put the drive back into that comp and am now getting the same error message from that one :confused: Any ideas on what to try next? Thanks in advance.
