Sounds like they are hidden from view. To enable hidden files/folders to be shown, open windows explorer, go into the Tools Menu and select Folder Options.

Click the View tab and underneath, you'll see an Advanced Settings box. If you take a look in there, there will be a section entitled "Hidden files and folders". Click the option to "Show hidden files and folders" and then Apply or Ok. You will then be able to view the temporary internet files etc.

The other way to check the history and temp internet files (without doing the above) is to do this:

History

Go into Internet Explorer. Press CTRL+H to show you the history.

Temporary Internet Files

In Internet Explorer, go into the Tools Menu and select Internet options. Under the General Tab, you'll see the Temporary Internet Files section. Click the Settings button and a new window will appear. Select the View Files button at the bottom of this window and an explorer window will open showing any files that have recently been downloaded when browsing.
