Help! I have a file in Documents and settings\local settings\temp\temporary Internet files\content.ie5

Windows will not let me delete the folder and when I try to open the folder I get a memory dump.

Chkdsk /r and chkdsk /f have failed to remove the folder inside of content.ie5 that is in error.

Any suggestions?

Go to Start > Run > Type "cmd" and hit enter.

When on this screen, type "cd %Userprofile%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\" and hit enter. Now type "del Content.IE5" and hit enter, it will ask you yes or no, type Y, hit enter - that should be that, if not, shout back.

Thanks for trying to help!

The keystrokes worked fine. The DEL produced the question asking for the Y or N to go ahead. I said Yes and got no response.

The directory and it's invalid contents are still there.

Corrected the problem I did:

in windows Explorer I right ckicked on the offending folder and selected move.
Then I right clicked on another folder (I created a temp folder for this) and clicked paste
When that finished I right clicked on the offending folder and selected delete.

Lo and behold that worked. It is now gone!
