I'm trying out windows 7 and really like it so far, however, with winXP I used to go to folder options and make it so I could see hidden folders and system folders, then i would go to docs and settings\user\local settings. Then I would empty tempory internet files and the temp directory. In windows 7 ( and Vista ) I find that path but access is denied. Also the local settings folder is actually a short cut. So is there a way to do this with windows 7? I don't want to use a program to do it, because I think if you want it done, you should do it yourself. ( and I don't trust a lot of those supposed "windows cleaners".
