I don't know if this will do the clean you are looking for but it won't hurt.
Disk Cleanup : Extended

I have no way of following a path of anything on your computer.

Ok, i did that, they are all still there. In fact i tried to run one and it was going to install itself, so i will remove all of them manually.

I was under the impression that you already deleted them manually. If you are sure you want them gone just right click on them and delete them.

Get rid of those garbage public folders, all of them, and try using my technique of downloading strictly to the desktop. It`s worked for over 20 years. Then keep the downloads you want in my documents. Done, problem solved.

I`m cool too !!!!!!!!!!

I was just having a little problem with what you wanted to do compared to what you did do. AddRam has a good idea. He uses Desktop and I made a new Folder I send my downloads to. As long as you dictate where/wheir they go so you can pick and choose what to do with them.
If your happy please mark this thread Solved.
