Q: Question about temp internet files not be created issue....

When you visit a webpage, such as a new one that you havent visited yet how come internet exployer does not creat files in the temporary internet files section when viewing in internet properties.

I even put the option for "every time I visit a page" and still when you go to a webpage it doesnt created temp internet files.

Reason for this question is i have a customer and shes wants to see pictures and stuff that he was looking at when he goes to sites like myspace, facebook etc.

Preferred Solution: Question about temp internet files not be created issue....

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Interesting I jsut tested this issue with a windows xp pc with the stock IE 6 that comes with it and when I visit a webpage or a couple of webpages whatever the amount is, then I look in the temporary internet view files section I see alot of files created when going to a particular webpage. It also worked under my own vista sp1 IE8 succesfully.

But at my customers pc and another vista pc that I have in my room that doesnt have any windows updates installed and not even service pack 1 for vista is installed it, does not created temp files in the folder.

I just removed the modify permissions from a folder to some users,so that they cannot delete or rename the files or subfolders.But now the prolem is that when ever that particular users make any changes in the files specially exel files, lot of temporary files are created in the folder which is very irritating.Can i get rid of it instead of deleting it every now and then.

Is the set of protected files static?
Maybe set the permissions so that users are unable to create new files too?

Recently, my friends son received a harassing IM from a local user, and while he showed his Mom the IM, and she contacted the other parents about this IM, they did not save the message. My question is, " does AIM create Temp files or store these messages where this may be retrieved, or is it lost for good. I am not looking for a log file or a key stroke file, or spyware, only to see if I can recover this one chat session, in order to document the event.
Thank You for your help Pete
 

A:Solved: AIM IM temp files created ??

Hiya

Not sure if you have to use a setting in the Options in AIM, as you do for MSN. Anyway, open Windows Explorer, and navigate to c:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Application Data\Aim\...

where %USERNAME% is your login name.

If no joy, have a look in c:\program Files\AIM

I have a user who is accumulating files in his %temp% directory at an average rate of 3 per minute, and they don't clean up on their own, so he ends up with hundreds of built up files daily.

Their names all start with "ver" then have numbers and letters, like "ver7b905", the only part that is consistent is the first three letters.

Is there a troubleshooting method I can use to determine what is creating these files, or a master list somewhere to look it up like we can with file extensions?

The system is XP Pro SP2.

I've got a virus or spyware or something like that. Some of the files are being created in C:\WINDOWS\Temp and being called win1.tmp, win1a6.tmp, win2.tmp, win18c.tmp.exe and so on. Usually my virus scanner picks up all the executables, but that really isn't helping me because it still hasn't removed the root of the virus. I'm also getting several viruses in C:\Documents and Settings\Kathy\Local Settings\Temp but these usually take much longer to produce. About every ten minutes, I'm getting a random popup from Internet Explorer which I'm positive is a virus because I'm using Firefox right now. I've scanned with Spybot and it found several things but one of them was called Virtumonde and whenever I rescan with Spybot it finds it again. This virus is in the registry. I have also scanned with AVG Anti-Spyware and that found Adware.Generic somewhere in the registry, but I have only gotten one chance to scan with that. Right now, I'm scanning with Ad-Aware 2007 and it has found 18 infects so far, but I think most of them are the temporary files.

Friends
recently a client of mine had a laptop stolen and a few issues and questions have resulted that pointed out some holes in my own understanding.
I need your expertise, please.

one of the points in question is, moving forward, how to write [vs copying if possible] important files directly to a USB removable device. Several questions arise:
- When a file is written / saved-to the usb device, are phantom copies made in the background, in a tmp directory on the main drive? If so, do they await 'deletion', and/or would a routine secure-wipe of free space deal with those?
- If a hacker/intruder/thief merely copies a file, is there a trace of that copy left somewhere in the pile? I understand that if a file is opened, barring extraordinary measures, windows keeps track of the last access. Further, if the drive is pulled, mounted on another system, and copies made, is there any trace of that activity left on the original source drive? I don't see how - but that's why I'm asking...

Thanks for all help

z

A:Are temp files created by Writes to USB device?

Using normal copy operations, files are NOT bounced over a temporary storage when copying to pendrive, another disk or whathever. They're just read from the source and written into the destination, without touching anything on a third place. Actually, the file, in pieces I guess, is temporarily copied into RAM for processing during the copy operation, but since it's volatile you should not worry about that.

I don't get well the last question, but as far as I understand, if a drive is moved to another system, copies of everything can be made from there and, as you say, the "last access date" will be updated, but other than that, traces will not appear in strange places other than the real destination of files.

hi.... im here to report a severe problem that i had yesterday... on the afternoon, i noted that the disk space has being filled up without no apparent reason... regardless of that, i continued to play games, and browse the internet... with a very slow perfomance....
5 hours later, i noted that the rhytm of the creation of that TEMP files was increasing dramatically(which they didnt have the .tmp extensions, it was just files without extension, and with names starting TMP000000 and then random letters or numbers...)
i seen that the disk has filling about 100 mb in one second, with the system very, very, very unresponsive... and when the disk reached 1 gb and counting... i immediately switched to the safe mode.... i used a program to see the folders that were occuping the majority of space in the disk, and i was totally catched up by surprise to see that the Temp folder was immensely filled up... i deleted that files, and then, i switched to the normal mode of the OS, no trace of that files again... however i have fear that they can return sooner or later...
so i need help to resolve this... i will post 2 screenshots that clearly illustrates that files...

A:Huge temp files, totalizing 30 GB, created in one single day

Hello Zeca112 and welcome to Seven Forums.

Very hard to say what's creating those temp files. You could have a legitimate program running in the background that is creating those temp files. Or it could be malware. To rule out malware I'd suggest three free on-demand programs that you could run in addition to your resident antivirus suite because no anti-malware program is 100% effective 100% of the time:

Malwarebytes

Superantispyware

TDSSKiller

If the malware scans come back clean you may be able to figure out which program is creating the temp files by using either the built in Task Manager or running another free (and more powerful) program from Microsoft called Process Explorer.

You do have some other malware in there. Let's take those out.

I notice that you are using some p2p file sharing programs like uTorrent and PeerGuardian. I would like to warn you that the nature of P2P filesharing is so that even if one is using a "clean" program, many of the files downloaded from non-documented sources have the potential of being infected. So, regardless of whether one is using a "clean" program, one may still be prone to infection by malware because more than half of all files available for download from peer-to-peer networks have been deliberately infected with some form of malware. I recommend that you remove it from your system via Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel.

Hi,
I've got a situation here whereby .TMP files are appearing in network directories, and the files are going missing. The size of the TMP file matches the original file.
I'm trying to narrow down the issue, because I think there may be two problems here.  
1. Offline Files are enabled, to allow profile redirection.    It seems that this is also by default, is allowing Clinet Side Caching when there are network issues.  Does the original file (.doc for example)  get renamed
as a HR234.TMP for example when the Slow link detection sees slow performance? 
2.  If the above TMP file is created when there are network issues, should this resolve itself (sync itself back to the network) when performance improves?
Currently we are in a situation where we have a department that have files missing from many network shares, all the missing files seemlingly replaced with a .TMP file, so do we have to go round to every machine in the department, and manually
sync them to resolve this?

Last month, using hjt, my PC was finally clean. I skipped one suggestion. In your reply of 11-07-04, 10:52 pm, you said to click Start > Run, then type %temp% in the Run box.This opened the Temp file. I was told then to click Edit > Select All, the Edit >Delete to delete the entire contents of the temp folder.

When I did this, a box came up saying Windows or other applications may not run properly. Trusting your advice, I went ahead and did as you said. Another box came up saying IE5 is a system file and it's removed, the PC may not work.

Thus, all those temp files are still there. Should I or shouldn't I remove them?

I often delete the temp files from the Internet Properties box, but don't quite dare remove them from Run > %temp% because of those warning messages.

Hello.
I hope that someone can help me with my problem. I a lower-intermediate on a computer.

I have my tower pc on constant all day- to record a streaming IP Camera from my work.
Initially, I saved these files into my docutments- which they would save as .avi files, and after every several days I would delete them as they would take up ALOT of space on my pc.

My pc is 250GB in size, and usually it would be about 80GB full before I had the IP Camera.

Just recently, I noticed all of the IP Camera avi files seemed to have disappeared from my documents if I went directly to the folder... BUT I could still see them in documents when I was choosing a location to save the recordings.
Upon right-clicking the avi files in the latter, the files would be of no size and wouldn't play.

Now my computer is 210GB full in the matter of a week.

After a while of fiddling about trying to find if the files were 'hidden' or somewhere else, and my techy friend had a look as well, we have found that it is the 'Temporary Internet Files' folder that is 118GB in size, but when I open the folder, there is Nothing in there.

Please help!!!

A:Temp Internet files folder is 118GB full, but no files???

Cleaning up temp. files is no problem. Use this for starters.
Disk Cleanup : Extended
Ccleaner is another little program that can do that. I recommend not using the registry part of Ccleaner. TFC bYy Old Timer is another good little program that works for such things. After your temps are clean reboot.
What would bother me the most is how did these files get put some where I didn't put them. I would run from the cmd. prompt/admin sfc /scannow. If System File Checker finds problems run it 3 times booting after each time.
What security do you have on your computer and have you run scans?

For weeks I have been puzzled by new Temporary Internet Files, Cookies and History folders constantly reappearing in my Windows XP Local Settings/Temp folder.
My normal TIF etc folders are still functioning normally in Local Settings. So no harm is being done but it's been annoying the hell out of me.
Today, quite by chance, I've discovered that the culprit is Adobe Reader X. 10.1.2. The act of simply opening Reader myself immediately creates these TIF folders within my temp folder. As well, of course, as every time I download and open pdf files.

I say immediately but it does take about 15 seconds after Reader opens on the screen before the TIF folders appear in the temp folder.
Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can go about resolving it?

(I've also asked this in the Adobe forums, had 100 views but as yet no replies!)

Many thanks.

I'd not worry about. It sounds like the adobe reader is just creating temp files to be able to access them quicker. I'd bet that when you have adobe reader and the files open, you cannot delete the files, but once all are closed, you can delete them no issues.

I was wondering if some one could tell me why my temp internet folder is not logging my visited web sites. When I turn on to my computer it will log only my home page and then if I browse the internet it will not log any other pages. Just wondering. Thanks

Could it be that you may be looking in the wrong folder?

Documents and Settings/Your user name/local settings/temperary internet files.

I am curious about the directory C:/Windows/Temporary Internet Files. Under this directory, I have Cache1, Cache2, Cache3, Cache4, and Content.IE5 with 8 subdirectories with very odd letter/number names like: 1l358qwl and 4xmzctqn. They all contain the SAME files.

What are these and should I delete these weird directories?

Thanks!

They are exactly what it says - temporary internet files. You can safely delete them and should on a regular basis. If you search on this board for temporary internet files, you will find many posts regarding this issue.

I'm having a bit of trouble with IE5.

Dell Optiplex GX110 (PIII 450, 128Mb ram, 6GB HD) Windows 98.

I have just re-installed IE5 on the PC.

When I access the internet, I can't download pages or any files, but don't get an error message, it just sits there with a blank page in IE.

I have been in looking at the IE5 settings and come across the following.

If I go to General/Temporary Internet Files Settings the amount of disk space to use is 0 MB.
If I move the slider up or down, this does not change. I can type a number into the box, but when I select OK, I get an error:

"Please select a value between 1 and 0 for how much disk space temporary internet files may use" (Yes that's correct, between 1 and 0!)

If I select "View Files" a new explorer window opens at c:\windows\temporary internet files, but none are listed.

If I try and "Move Folder" to the D: drive for example, I am told that there won't be enough disk space in the new location. (There's 1.6 GB on drive D and 1.06 on C!)

Cheers
Mike (confused!!!)

Hi

I'm looking for an explanation of how to read into my Temp internet files.

The columns I'm interested in are the 'Expires' column and the 'Last Modified' column.

Am I right in thinking that the 'Last Modified' column represents the last time I accessed this particular file (url?), or does it mean something else?

Thanks

Kevin

Hi, hoping someone might be able to help - about a week ago, using the buttons in the temporary internet files section, under the general tab in IE6 properties, I deleted all files and cookies. Now, IE6 is not saving my cookies or temp files in this folder at all? I made sure the location is still the default location of C:\Documents and Settings\Wil\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files, even tried changing it to something else, and then back again, but no luck. I am sure that these files are being saved somewhere on my HD, as I can go to my normal sites that require cookies etc. but I cannot find the cookies or temp files anywhere, and I would like to know where they are and be able to access them when needed.
Is there some way to reset this feature?

Thank-You, Wil

Hey Wil and Welcome to TSF

I'm assuming your using Windows XP, is this correct?

Click Start>My Computer
Double click the C:\Windows\Temp
There should be a Cookies Folder a History Folder and a Temporary Internet Files Folder

Do you have files in those folders?

I have followed several suggestions and still can't locate temporary internet files with Vista. In the Content.IE5 folder all of the subfolders are empty despite having selected 'show hidden files & folders' option in the Folder Options and unchecked 'Hide protected operating system files/folders' option. Any ideas? Could a programme be installed that deletes everything?

I've put in search, *.tmp,*,chk,~*.* and thousands of files popped up. I don't have any idea where they came from or what to do with them. I'm afraid to delete them since there's so many. I use the disc cleaner regularly. I'm also having internet files with bunches of files in them. I'd sure appreciate any help.

Do temporary internet files get stored ONLY when a site is visited on your own pc?? Or is there any other possible way for those to come up in history? I found some really inappropriate files that were stored in the middle of the night, when I was not on my PC. I have a firewall and SpyNuker. How could this have happened?
 

A:Temp internet files

The files should only be created when a site is visited.

Perhaps the date and time stamp is in error on the files however. It is very difficult to not get "inappropriate content" at times, when pop-up and pop-under ads abound.

I have 2 computers on a home network. One uses XP, the other ME. We were searching for some files on the ME machine. Since we are on a network, we both searched the ME. I used the XP, she used the ME, itself. I found them on her machine. She didn't. To make a long story short. I found them in the temp internet files folder. However, when I looked there on the ME machine, it contained an entirely different set of files. Even when I did a 'search' on that machine, the files were not found. Why do I find a different set of files in the exact same folder? And how can I get access to the files that I know are there from the machine they are on? It was weird to be able to see files on the ME from the XP machine, and then not be able to find them on the machine itself. I know it has something to do with the way each machine deals with the temp internet files, but I would like to know what.... thanks.

Hello. I would like to delete my temp internet files, the ones that reside in the C:\WINDOWS\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5 folders. When I've tried to delete the folders themselves, I've received warnings that this is not a good idea. Deleting the files w/in each of the folders in Content.IE is a pain, and takes a long time.

Is there any other way to accomplish this?

Thanks very much

Use the clear files and Unnecessary files buttons - I do not recommend using the Duplicates files button as many dupes are there on purpose.

Ok, I am still getting used to XP. In WIndows ME, there was a windows\tempory internet files folder and a windows\temp folder that I deleted regularly because IE saved a bunch of unwanted files in there all the time. Where are these folders in XP? I have done a search for them and have found a few different ones but just arent sure which are what. Where should I look, or where can I find them?

I have a somewhat different question but it does concern TIF's. I meant to ask this last week 'cuz it had been happening for quite some time: back in May I had asked at a different forum "why did I have so many cookies,etc.items in my TIF after visit there but only a couple from other forum" ( I was referring to sevenforum) but lately I've had oodles from here too. Now, Murphy's Law, when I logged out of here approx. 1/2 hr.ago & checked TIF's there were 259 items but only 2 cookies & both were sevenforum, not those others. Go figure!

Hi- I was viewing my temp.internet files folder in Explorer and came across a file called index. The file is encoded and will only open as "read only". Under Properties it says it takes up over 400Kb. When I go to delete it a message says, Unable to send to recyle bin the file is write protected or currently in use. The previous message says that another user might have it locked. Can I some how delete this file or will it grow and take up my "precious memory"?
 

A:Temp. Internet Files

What the index.dat is is all the places you have visited on the web. There is one in History, Cookies and temp files. You cannot delete these normally but you can with a program called the Spider. I have a full version but can't remeber where I got it. If you want, I can email it but virus check and trojan check just to be safe.

Regards

eddie
