Cache="C:\Users\[USER]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files"

That is ok, but all files are in my TEMP directory, so whan I want to see all files here, I see nothing, because "View files" button opens folder "C:\Users\[USER]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files"

I thought I wrote it clearly in my 1st post. All I want is to find WHERE system process gats wrong directory and WHY all is in TEMP and not in correct location.

So please, don't reply if you can't help me with changing this problem ;-) Thanx
Hi Raptor. No reason to get angry, I am trying to help, I did not misunderstand what you were saying, I just was pointing out there are 2 dir's in your computer for some reason, and was making sure you did not get them mixed up.

There is a similar problem with Windows XP, it could shed some light on this problem:

Each time a user visits a website using Microsoft Internet Explorer, files downloaded with each web page (including html, images, Cascading Style Sheets and JavaScript scripts) are saved to the Temporary Internet Files folder, creating a cache of the web page on the local computer's hard disk, or other form of digital data storage. The next time the user visits the cached website, only changed content needs to be downloaded from the Internet; the unchanged data is available in the cache.
Despite the name 'temporary', the cache of a website remains stored on the hard disk until the user manually clears the cache. This is often regarded as a privacy issue[1] [2] [3], because anyone with access to the computer can view the cache. The contents of the folder are indexed using an index.dat file, a form of database.
On Windows XP, the cache is usually located at %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files (where %USERPROFILE% is an environment variable pointing to the root directory of the logged-in user's user profile). However, the cache may be moved by changing a value in the registry. Occasionally an additional cache named "Temporary Internet Files" may appear in %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files. This location can only be deleted by manually accessing the folder and removing it. To date, no satisfactory explanation for the appearance of this directory has been located.
On Windows Vista, the cache for Internet Explorer 7 is usually located at %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low\Content.IE5 where %LOCALAPPDATA% is an environment variable pointing to %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local (note that the checkbox for 'Hide protected operating system files' under 'Folder Options' must be unchecked and the 'Show hidden files and folders' option enabled for the files to be visible in Windows Explorer). For all other Trident-based applications, the cache is located at %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files. Like on Windows XP, the location of the cache can be changed by moving the folder location in Internet Explorer or by changing a value in the registry.
The Temporary Internet Files cache can be useful in certain situations. For example, if no Internet connection is available, previously cached websites are still available offline. Certain online media files (such as embedded Flash movies) are not easily accessed directly through Internet Explorer, but are automatically saved into the cache after viewing them. Depending on the type of website and how often it is updated, the cached data may not reflect the online version of the website. The cache is also useful for police to collect forensic evidence.
The cache can be cleared by using Internet Options within the Internet Explorer interface, but this method is subject to deletion privacy issues. Many alternative tools exist to erase the data instead.
This is from Temporary Internet Files - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Feel free to give it a read. I would suggest deleting the C:\Users\[USER]\AppData\Local\Temp\Temporary Internet Files dir, and reboot, see if that fixes the problem, just move all the files in it, if you want to keep them, to the correct DIR.
