Yes it is a hidden folder. Check out the second link I posted and it will show you how to access it.

I'm sorry to appear obtuse but the second link is the Brink tutorial and I can't find any reference to IE5 there.

Yes I am. It is my fault. The issue I hopped over to was the secret file ie5 and I got there because I wondered if it was that which had a handle on the Temp IE files folder and was preventing it from emptying; it was mentioned in one of the Technet postings as a possibility.

still mystified

Does no-one out there have any idea why the 'Empty Temporary Internet Files Folder on Exit' didn't work in XP and still doesn't in 7? I have pushed all the right buttons.
