    Ok, under XP when you visited a site with lots of pictures, like here at Seibertron (or porn sites ), when you used to go into the temporary internet files all the pictures from the website were there (all the little banners and all the website content basically)

    this was handy if you wanted to save a lot of pictures to your hard drive but didnt want to click 'save picture as' each time, you just clicked each imageto view it , then filtered the temp internet files by size and usually the larger jpegs appeared at the top, so you just copied them to your desired destination...

    Now with Vista, ive found the Temp files, but there is hardly anything there, no jpegs and pretty much nothing from recently visited sites...can anyone tell me where the 'proper' temp internet files are?

    It doesen't show up when your browsing regurdless of what your folder options are, but you can get to it with the adress bar or a run box -

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

    Some of the stuff in there is hidden, so change the hidden files and hide protected operating system files settings in folder options.
