I notice during virus scan and lot of time being spent on Temp Internet files. I usually choose to delete the entire browsing history before I run full virsus scans. I wonder if C:\Documents and Settings\Denise\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5 is a legacy of IE 5. Haven't used IE5 for a long time and am on IE 7. Can I delete this folder or is this the same folder the IE 7 uses for temp internet files?

IE7 does indeed continue to use that folder (as did IE6 before it). The folder is even there on Vista.
