    Folder OLK11 (Windows XP)

    Hi loungers
    I am not a Windows XP or 2003 user but my next door neighbour is.
    He had a photo which defied all attempts at removal because they couldn't find out where it was. I managed to get Properties up and it showed the photo's location to be Cocuments and Settings{his user name}Local SettingsTemporary Internet FilesOLK11.
    So off I went to find this folder using Windows Explorer, display Hidden Files and Folders set but I could not find an OLK11.
    Can someone enlighten me as to where/what OLK11 is, please?
    Also, if they created a new email with a Photo attachment, if they looked at the attachment something called Windows Photo and Fax Viewer started up to display the photo. This utility has Next and Previous buttons. Although the email has only one attachment, if the Next button is clicked, other photos are displayed. It keepson doing this until it returns to the beginning again and starts over. What's going on here? It looks like Windows is using the contents of some folder/buffer, but where are the other photos coming from?
    Hope someone can help

    To find OLK11....
    From here - "The only way I can see this folder is to open a doc from my Outlook email and then do a "Save As" and then the OLK11 directory is accessed but I can't get to that folder to open/move this saved file."

    Windows Photo and Fax Viewer is the default image viewer in Windows XP. When it opens an image it gives you the ability to view every image in that folder by clicking the back and forward buttons. If you right click on a displayed image and select Properties, you can discover which folder and it's path. HTH

    See Attachments remain in the Outlook Secure Temporary File folder when you exit Outlook 2003 for an explanation. Outlook by default creates a folder named OLKnnn where nnn is random to store attachments. you cannot navigate to this folder the normal way, but you can view it if you enter its full path in the address bar of Windows Explorer (select View | Toolbars | Address Bar if it isn't displayed).
    When you open a picture directly from an e-mail, you are actually opening the copy in the OLKnnn folder, and if other pctures have been left behind there, Windows Photo and Fax Viewer will show those too.
