In Documents & Settings/(me)/Local Settings/Temporary Internet Files, I right click properties and it shows me that the capacity is 399Mb but it is empty as far as I can see.
Folder properties are set to show hidden System Files etc, so I'm wondering where this extra rubbish actually resides? A windows cleaner will find and delete these but I'm just curious to know where they are.

Copy and paste the following into the Explorer address bar (Not Internet Explorer).

C:\Documents and Settings\(me)\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

(me) = your name.

You will find the additional files. I usually make a shortcut to this folder on the desktop. They are cleaned when you empty the Temporary Internet Files when you check the Delete all offline cotent box by clicking on the Delete files button in Interent Options.
