Deleting One Specific File in Temporary Internet Files Folder

23 posts in this topic

Does anyone know a way to specify and delete a specific file ( example 000300.txt ) out of the temporary internet files folder. I can get to that folder using @userprofiledir but the filedelete does not find the file. Thanks in advance.

I am sure they are system or hidden files attached is what is displayed under properties.

That is why I was asking if anyone had done this. That is a system folder.

I did not see an option for rundll32 to just delete 1 file.

Dim $var1, $file, $line, $search, $value

#RequireAdmin

Local $value = FileGetAttrib(@UserProfileDir & "\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\000301.txt")

MsgBox(0, $value, @error)

$var1 = FileDelete(@UserProfileDir & "\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\000301.txt")

MsgBox(0, $var1, @error)

Returns a value of 1 like it cannot find the file.

These are files in the web cache but show up when viewing internet files as shown below.

JohnOne,

If the file is not really at that location you need to find where it really is

I would imagine that folder redirection is taking place. ;)

gblss,

What OS are you running? :huh:

Windows 7 64 bit.

I can use ShellExecuteWait(@SystemDir & "\RunDll32.exe", " InetCpl.cpl, ClearMyTracksByProcess 8")

This does the trick but deletes all downloaded files.

I was just wondering if someone had run into this before and found a way to just delete 1 file.

Thanks.

I am new to forum and now know how to attach files!

If a file is used by another program (or lock it)!

Can not delete it! Need to specify the program to use (or lock it) and then close or kill it before you can delete it!

File in the temporary directory of the Internet, can be a web browser that working!

Try this:

_DelFile(@UserProfileDir & "\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\000301.txt"  )

;_DelFile(@UserProfileDir & "\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\000301.txt")

Delete all files/folders inside it:

$iReturn = _FindDelAll(@UserProfileDir & "\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files")   
;~ $iReturn =  _FindDelAll(@UserProfileDir & "\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files")
If $iReturn = 1 Then
   ConsoleWrite(" Success! " & @CRLF)
