Thanks Philb but not quite so simple. I have already selected 'show hidden files and folders'. In c:\documents and settings\ the only visible folders are \administrator, \all users, and \default user.
Within \administrator there is \local settings but the temp files have been deleted with CCleaner previously, along with history etc.
But nowhere can I find a \'network service' folder referred to by Malwarebytes during a scan. I have written down the path as in my first post;
C:\documents and settings\network service\local settings\temporary internet files\content IE5\(then several subdirectories). I might add that MBAV does not find any problem with these 30,000 files but it takes about 15 minutes to scan them each time and I am sure they are slowing down the rest of the machine also, so I would love to find them and get rid of them.
