Vista & Temporary Internet Files???http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/itprovistasecurity/thr...1 of 1702-05-2013 22:53
I have the same problem viewing files in the Temporary Internet Files folders. Tried View Hidden files,disabling Phishing and all sorts of other things. Didn't work. Sought help from DELL where i purchasedmy PC; they also couldn't help. Suspect it is a limitation of Vista, or even a bug! Been advised to junk Vista and use XP which is stillbetter!Reply Quoteyeah i bet its some new vista security setting that wont allow us to look at them :T so annoyingReply Quotethe correct answer is: C:\Users\[your user name]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5 you will have to copy and paste that into windoes explorer because it (Content.IE.5) is hidden. tricky microsoft has double hidden it even though we allow viewing of system and hidden files wonder what else they are hiding inside those index.dats Smile Reply QuoteSnapperJW,I hope you found your answer. I'd appreciate any responses you feel comfortable in sharing. Myexperience with IE and Vista are, that everything is about security. If this is your personal PC with Vistarunning, make sure you are logged in with Administrative privileges and not just as the Standard User.Further (I'm sure you already know this) make sure that you have set your folder preferences to showhidden, system, protected etc. files/folders. You may also want to right click on the specific folder andadd rights and privileges to yourself to that folder. As you know, it is difficult to open certain folders.Once you've gotten into the Systems folder via IE settings, temp. files, you have accessed a folder withhigher rights and privileges. If you don't find what you're looking for in that folder, navigate yourself outof the folder by modifying the URL in your browser, 1 folder out. Try to look for a Temp folder underYOUR username instead of the temporary internet files. Careful not to nest yourself out too far, or youwon't be able to access the folders before you (higher privileged files). Also, be aware that thistechnique of accessing system folders directly through IE and WMP, is a VERY large systems vulnerabilitythat MicroSoft has not yet addressed. Accessing privileged and protected systems/files has been theirpriority that can be circumvented by using IE and WMP system privileges. I hope that helped. Let meknow if you received a different solution.Reply Quote Why on Earth did Microsoft decide to make Vista's Temporary Internet files full blown "
 protected operating system files
"; hidden by default and requiring special settings to even view? Does this in anyway make sense in any universe where logic and common sense prevail? 75% of all viruses I find bymanually scanning hide in this location, and now Microsoft is providing a nice secure home for them.Nicely done.Is Microsoft TRYING to get people to buy Apple? If this is not their intention I hope they stronglyreconsider the choices they've made with Vista and their strong arm marketing tactics.

Reply QuoteSo I guess no one has found a way to view Vista's temporary internet files yet.. Tongue Tied Reply Quote You have to remove the check from the "Hide Protected System Files" option under Folder Options(available under any "Tools" menu in any folder window. It's like giving criminals a nice cozy private room right in your house.Reply QuoteMaybe this will answer some of your questionsThe 'Temporary Internet Files' Folder in Windows Vista.Reply QuoteAfter doing everything that's been mentioned in the thread, I still can't view the wma files that I'veopened before. Can anyone help me?Reply Quote
Its amazing. I realize people want to help, but if you're guessing at solutions, rather don'tattempt. You're just eating up my bandwidth. I have tried everything. The only people that willbe able to give us an answer is Microsoft, it seems. And they're silent. For the first time in mylife, I'm getting the feeling many others have about M'soft. And it is sad.
