How to delete .CDF files in cache

How do you delete Channel Definition Files (CDF) from your Temp. Internet Files folder?  I have tried,(Explorer 4.0)browser), View-Internet Options-Delete Files-Delete All Subscription Content, and Cleared The History Folder, but they are still there.  When you try to delete them in Windows/Explorer(file manager)they show Access Denied and won't delete. I have deleted all items in Windows/Subscriptions folder also.

Explorer is probably showing "all" files,
whereas "My Computer/...." is probably *NOT* doing the same.
Thus, you have two different "views" of the same directory.
Can you delete the files while in Explorer?

Steve,

When you try to delete the file make sure your browser is not active also go into My Computer/Windows/Temporary Internet Files/ right click the file you want to delete and then click delete, that should work.

Browser is closed. They don't show up in My Computer/C:/Windows/Temporary Internet Files.  The folder opens and shows to be empty.  If I go back to Explorer (File Manager)- Windows/Temporary Internet Files, they're still there.

You are probably right, but they won't delete in Windows/Explorer - Windows/Temp. Internet Files folder.  It says "Access Denied".

Right-click on the file to be deleted,
and remove any "hidden" or "system" or "read-only" attributes.
Then, retry to delete.

That's it.  They're marked Read-Only. They're deleted now. Thanks for your help
