I have 10 temp internet files/cookies that will not delete no matter what I do. All others will delete.
I go to:
Internet Explorer 8/ tools/ internet options/ browsing history/ settings/view files.
These files will not delete
from a 3 day period in Oct 09.
Any suggestions? :thumbsup:

If the files cannot be deleted normally, you can try this free program:

Unlocker - helpful in deleting stubborn / awkward files:


Have you run any scans, e.g. Malwarebytes or SuperAntiSpyware?
Can't see any reason why those temp files cannot be deleted normally.
