    I all,

    My computer is on Windows XP pro SP2. I set it to display hidden folders and files.

    My problem is on temp internet files that I can delete :

    Posted Image

    Theses files have 0 Ko, or a certain weight.

    AVAST, Spybot, donít recognize them or say there are not windows, Linux, or Aix files

    For delete them, I should want to use

    Others tools --> file tools --> Eraser for DOS

    Under Windows I can see with no problem :
    c:\documents and settings\user\local settings\temporary internet files\temp folder\ and the bad files ...

    But with Eraser for DOS, I can't. I only see :

    CD docume~1,
    CD user,
    And it's all !

    I can't see "local settings" and others hidden folders

    So there is my question :

    Where, on ERASER for DOS, I set that I want to display hidden folders/directories/files ???
    Thank you for your answer(s)

      Nice, but you are in the wrong forum, UBCD

      Why don't you use the inbuilt tools?
      Close Internet Explorer and Explorer and go to:
      Start > Settings > Control Panel > Internet Options > General tab > Temporary Internet Files > Delete Files...

      Have you tried to add a file to the \temporary internet files\temp folder\ or change the name of any of the files in it and then delete them?

          You are in the wrong forum because you are referring to Eraser for DOS in:
          Others tools --> file tools --> Eraser for DOS which is the case with UBCD.

          UBCD4Win has the same program located in the nu2menu here:
          Programs >Disk Tools >Security >Eraser

          UBCD

              Have you tried to use CCleaner, Unlocker, FileASSASSIN or MoSo Force Delete?

                The files appear to be a corrupted file/disk issue and if so... I'd first suggest that you backup important files before you continue. It's better to play it safe that to chance loosing your data.

                Once you have safeguarded your files by backing them up... Run CHKDSK from UBCD4Win and use option 3. After that point you should be able to delete the files if they still exist after performing the repair.
                Plan A is always more effective when the device you are working on understands that Plan B involves either a large hammer or screwdriver....

                    Hello

                    Ccleaner, Unlocker, FileAssassin, MoSo Force Delete have no effect on my pb.
                    Now, after have read FAQs (I should have start by this way ... before ... :wacko:) and seen differences between UBCD and UBCDWin (thank you bengt :blush:) I 'm downloading UBCDWIN.

                    But I'll try it tomorrow, 'cause it beguin to be late, in France (11:00 pm).
                    Regards

                      If you still can't delete the files after running chkdsk then it might be a case of having null characters embedded in the filename. If this is the case then try deleting them from the command prompt in UBCD4Win with their short 8.3 format path/filename.

                      del C:\DOCUME~1\user\LOCALS~1\TEMPOR~1\W3A487AL\*.*


                      You could also try removing the hidden attribute from the folders using UBCD4Win then use your dos based method to delete the files.
                      If you're afraid of taking any chances then the chances are great that you will never learn anything

                        Hi PCUSER

                        It's a very good suggestion, that, to remove hidden attribute before delete in DOS frame.

                        I'll beguin by that.
                        Regards

                          Hi guys,

                          For the hidden attributes, it's good.

                          But after, always impossible to delete these "bullet" files. :angry:

                          Others sugestions ?

                          Regards

                            "Bullet" files ???? that is not a technical term... you can't go around making up words for something you are seeing and expect others to understand them.


                            I think you may be refering to the single period and double period that are listed at the top of each directory listing and if so... you are correct you can not remove those because they are not files, they are symbolic representations of the current directory and the parent directory above the current one.

                            So the...

                            .
                            ..


                            ... can be used in your command-lines to perform tasks or to go to another location. Since these are just symbolic representations of different locations, they will exist in every folder even if nothing exists in that location, like other files or directories.

                            Example commands using those symbols...

                            To delete all files in the current folder you are in...

                            del .

                            To move from the current folder back to the folder that contains it... say you are in C:\Windows\temp...

                            The command ...
                            [size]cd..[/size]
                            Will take you to the C:\Windows folder.
                            Plan A is always more effective when the device you are working on understands that Plan B involves either a large hammer or screwdriver....
