I don't see the temporary internet files folder.  I have show hidden files and folders selected

Look at it from a computer other than the server.  With the correct permissions, it will show you everything you want.

Did you try unticking the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) box in Folder Options?

Control PanelFolder OptionsView tab > scroll down until you see Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) > untick the box next to it

You can use third party tool called CCleaner. It has two version Pro and Free. You can use free one. This tool cleans potentially unwanted files (including temporary internet files, where malicious programs and code tend to reside) and invalid Windows Registry entries from a computer.
