I need to create a log file of the contents of :
C:\Documents and Settings\cdowd\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

How do I do this as I need to print out logs for a particular person.

Many thanks ... Cathy

You can try going to command line and browsing to the directory and typing:
dir /S > log.txt

This should produce all the output you need....let me know if this is what you want.

Hi,  Thanks for your comments. I went to the command line and typed dir /s > log.txt
However, the Internet address does not appear on the output (only the cookie or the temporary file name).

Is there any way that the Interne address can be outputed to this log file ?

Thanks again ... Cathy

That I am not sure of I will have to take a look into it some more.
Superior storage. Superior surveillance.

WD Purple drives are built for 24/7, always-on, high-definition security systems. With support for up to 8 hard drives and 32 cameras, WD Purple drives are optimized for surveillance.

These are called 'cache viewers'.  There are some here:

You need physical access to the machine in question.

Oher good ways of checking what people are up to is to use a proxy server.  So all Internet Explorer machines pull content from the proxy server, and the proxy server goes out and gets the web pages from the Internet.  Pretty easy to setup - try Squid on Linux for something free, if not, poke around for proxy servers.

we need to view the logs on the server - we have sbs 2000 and the isa enabled to log but can't find the reports. Can someone help us to get the reports out.

Your original question asked how to get local logs from C:\Documents and Settings\cdowd\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files, for which you now have answers.

However, you could try the following freeware for ISA server which will give you better reports than the default WEB ones built in -

I used a product called webspy in conjunction with the isa logs and they produced a neat result. I have it on  trial for 30 days. Will update with more feedback.
