Hi

I am using Vista Home edition and I cannot acces my temp int files.
I made them visible but when I click the folder to open it my access is
denied.

On the folder Icon there is a litle blue arrow (kinda symbolising like a
right turn) in the bottom left of the folder, this is the same on quite a few
folders that I repviously couldnt see.

any help greatly appreciated.

What you're referring is not your Temporary Internet Files
folder. It's what's called a "junction point". Here's an
article that provides a pretty good explanation of junction
points.

Windows Vista Junction Points

To view your actual TIF folder, do the following.
Go to Control Panel and double click Internet Options.
On the General page under Browsing History, hit the Settings
button.
In Temporary Internet Files and History Settings, hit the View
files button.
This should open a folder similar to this one.
C:\Users\YOURACCOUNT\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary
Internet Files

Here's an article with info on how to view what is actually in
that folder.
