There is a Temporary Internet Files folder literally STUCK on my desktop. There was another listed under My Documents > When I tried to delete that one, it deleted. So then I tried to move the folder on the desktop to My Documents with no success. "Access Denied", or "In use by another user or program. Close all programs and try again." I tried to "Send" the folder to another location on the computer with no success. Also tried deleting it and cutting and pasting it some where else, that also did not work.

Temporary Internet Files folder's properties:

General Tab > Attributes: Read only box is checked and grayed out.

Any suggestions. Could not find anything in the past when Googling this problem.

Have you tried last known configuration or system restore?

To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps:
Start your computer.
When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.
When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER.

It could be marked as a system folder. Try typing
Attrib "Temporary Internet Files" -S
into the command prompt, starting at the desktop.
