    Cant Delete Temp Internet File

    I am trying to clean up a laptop to reissue it and can not delete four temp internet files. I have tried from within Internet Explorer to delete the files, from the actual folder where the files are located. I have tried to delete the files in safe mode.

    I tried in a command window using various commands from DEL, ERASE, RD, RMDIR, RENAME; both in Windows and in Safe Mode... nothing.

    I have tried to rename, check the properties but the properties window will not display. The file is seen in the command window. One of the files is named:

    exercise-bikes_Sporting-Goods_W0QQcatrefZC6QQcoactionZcompareQQcoentrypage ZsearchQQcopagenumZ1QQfromZR2QQsacategoryZ382QQsor ecordstoskipZ50QQsosortorderZ2QQsosortpropert[1]

    This is making me nuts. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    You can use one of the many "cleanup" utilities, for example CCleaner (free).

    Or you can restart the laptop in safe mode (press F8 repeatedly after the restart).
