In Windows XP running IE 6, after browsing, one would expect to see the Temporary Internet Files folder loaded with many files.   I found that in XP, under Documents and Settings is a folder for each user where these should be housed, ie:  c:\Documents and Settings\userid\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5   and then followed by 4 or so funny named folders.

Windows Explorer does not show any of the files in these directories, and they should be populated with many files.  Does anyone know why the cached files don't show in these funny named folders?  I believe they are there as they are found there when doing the search facility, but just not showing in Windows Explorer.  Any ideas how to get them to show in the file list?
