Anyway, I decided it was time to clean up my XP and i went to the C drive and noticed a suspicious folder named Internet. I don't think this is the temporary internet folder, because I located that where it normally is: inside the WINDOWS folder. However, after searching google I can't seem to find anyone who had this. I investigated the contents of the folder and there are many subfolders that appear to be internet addresses, ex: 0.gvt0.com. Now, what's weird about it is that when clicking it there are two more subfolders and then there is the most random picture ever: what appears to be a Japanese picture of a man on a mo-ped. Now, believe me when I say I don't visit Japanese websites or anything like that. It had to be the most random thing I've seen. I went through and most of the folders are like this. When right-clicked on it says the file was created on October 21, 2008. Most of the files were created on that date. The total file size of this Internet folder is roughly 33 MB.
So what I was ultimately wondering is: am I just missing something here and this is actually a temporary internet files location or is this something else and is it safe to delete? Thanks in advance for your time and Happy Thanksgiving!
