Windows 7: Deleting Content.IE5 content

Deleting Content.IE5 content

I have about 83GB of useless data trapped in C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\Z1O6OK0R, DQ1O7FJH, etc. This is not to be confused with C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files. The only way I could examine them is by using the Glary Utilities Diskspace analyzer. Using Windows explorer I could not get past systemprofile. When I try to delete the files with the analyzer nothing happens. All the tips I have read seem to refer only to the C:\Users string. Double clicking on Z1O6OK0R, etc reveals all of the saved pages, many thousands of them. How do I get rid of them and reclaim the space again?

You'll need to Show Hidden Folders to get AppData to show. Alternatively you could run CCleaner which should clear them out for you.

I did the reveal hidden folders thing. CCleaner only cleans out the C:\Users string. I have run it and several other cleaners, but none of them touch these files. They just remain there.
