I'm trying to unhide hidden files. In C:\Documents and Settings\user\, there is no Local Settings folder. Using the Tools\Folders Options\View\Hidden...\Show method does not show the Local Settings folder. So, I can't delete temps, internet files.

Does anyone know an alternative method to show hidden files

If you have "unhidden" it, then only reason normally, that you would not be able to see it or access it would be if you are not logged on as that particular user?

Are you an administrator of that PC? If it is the Content.IE5 folder you are trying to see input the following into the Windows Explorer address box then press <Enter>.

C:\Documents and Settings\*User name\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5
