Gooday all. I have a problem deleting the cookies etc. When I go I.E.>tools>internet options>view files>select all> delete> yes. The machine won't do it. I have used ATF Cleaner, tried to delete them individually and so on with no sucess. So there are 60 or so files in there that I can not get rid of. The kids have been on the machine playing games, so they may have downloaded something I don't know about. It has a legit copy of windows xp home installed. Any ideas. Thanks in advancs, James.

Try CCleaner, you may have to try it in Safe Mode:

click the download to the right using the Green Arrow

Just in case you need to know how to get into safe mode:

Hello.

Things getting stuck in the temp folders are common signs of a malware infection. Have you run any malware scans?

Try Trend Micro's Online Scanner and see if you get any results.

With Regards,
