    In a PC (OS=WMe) with a User (password) Desktop, are Cookies, Temporary Internet Files, and History found in a different location than where these items would normally be if there were no User profile establlished?

    Trying to run the following DOS routine:
    smartdrv
    deltree cookies
    deltree tempor~1
    deltree history

    Not sure whether to run this from C:\Windows, or whether the routine should be run from C:\WIndows with some kind of subfolder.

    Any clues?

    Thanks for the help.

    Are you using the forward slash.

    Thanks for the reply.

    No, never have used the forward dash, have not seen it used for the purpose intended in this forum either.

    In W98 - Users COOKIES and TEMP Files are stored separately under C:\WINDOWS\PROFILES\~

    You might see if ME is the same
