    Hey folks,

    I performed a search scan with Index.dat quickviewer and it found an index.dat file at: C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\index.dat of 4496kb. Strangely though, when I try to open the folder, the Content.IE5 folder isn't there. I have the Hide Protected Operating System Files unchecked, but it still is not visible. Any thoughts?

    If you've only tried navigating to that location, try running (Winkey + R) this instead:

    %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet
    Files\Content.IE5

    That brings the .IE5 folder up for me, even on 7.

    HTH

    This folder exists irrespective of the IE version used, afaik.
    I doubt the OP is using 5.
