    Lost Temporary Internet Files folder (XP SP2)

    Hi

    I seem to have lost my 'Temporary Internet Files' folder.
    I'm not having any problems accessing websites but Windows Explorer doesn't display the folder in my Local Settings folder .
    I tried rebooting but no folder.

    Can anyone suggest what might be going on?

    Cheers
    Ken

    ken,
    Check out this article. It's a little older but should help you.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Thanks Bob

    I had already checked the options and I did have the 'Show hidden files and folders' selected but this time I removed the check for 'Hide protected operating system files'.
    I now have the folder back.

    I still don't know what caused the change. I regularly open the Temporary Internet Files Folder and haven't made any changes to the options that I'm aware of.

    All's good now.

    Cheers
