    Warning : REGISTRY Changes.  

    Go to the start button, in the box there, type regedit, then press enter.

    Now, look for this entry:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\cache

    When you find that entry,
    Check the permissions by doing this:

    Go to Edit at the top of the page, then go to Permissions
    Do you see that you have Full Control? That box should have a checkmark in it.
    In the right hand pane you should see the string entry: cache
    double click that entry and copy the contents for Value data: and post it here.

    Should say something like:
    %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
