Hi,

In doing some house cleaning getting ready to create a backup image of my system I came across a lot of files in the "Temporary Internet Files" folder with a name of the form 16832S showing as an internet address of res://psires.dll/2/16832S. These files showup if I open the folder in windows. If I open a cmd prompt and go to the folder none of the files showup. What are they and are they really occupying space on my hard drive? When I try to delete them, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I am confused. I am running 1.5.0.1

Thanks,

Bob.

psires.dll is a Secunia PSI Application Extension File.

What U have found should be cleaned out if U use the Windows Clean Up Tool ensuring the Temporary Internet Files box is ticked (Check Marked)

Thanks for the quick reply. I did manage to get rid of them. It was strange that windows explorer could see them and a command prompt could not.

Morning.....just a quickie before you lock the thread !
Couldn't/shouldn't CHKDSK be used to set some things to rights first ? Verification so on and so forth ?
I know that some people knock off Windows indexing for better performance....possibly it complicates later searches ? Just an observation.

What has check disk got to do with routine dumping of Windows dross via the Windows Clean Up Utility?

Indexing? What has that got to do with Check Disk or this thread - they are all totally different.

Being as the user was confused about what was on his hard disc or not and mentioned having differing reactions when trying to clear out; and, as CHKDSK verifies Index files and Free Space amongst other things...I thought it might have been relevant. Of course you have much more knowledge that I respect.
