File not showing - hidden?

My Norton keeps finding an ocx file in my
c:/Documents and Settings /JoeSeadog/localsetting/temporary internet
files/content.ie5
folder and it says it is a threat.
However, when I go to that folder I only show a couple cookie files and
nothing else. When I right click the folder for PROPERTIES I show 1454
files in 14 folders. I have no + beside the foler and cannot seem to
open it. How do I get in there to delete the file, and well as clean up
those temporary internet files.
I'm a pretty experienced used and can find no setting to change to show
this content.ie5 file

Any Help out there?

Joe,

Simply clearing the Temporary Internet files using Internet Options, General
tab will get rid of the virus/Malware. See :
http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/delcache.htm

BTW, you can view the content.ie5 folder by typing the full path in
Start/Run dialog.

If clearing the Temporary Internet Files had worked I wouldn't have
written. After supposedly clearing, I can still view the files by typing
the full path in Start/Run dialog, but it won't let me delete them from
there.

Any other suggestions?

If you've already tried clearing the TIF, you could have mentioned.

See if clearing the 'subject' user profile's TIF from Adminstrator logon
helps.

Sorry for the confusion.
I went in Safe Mode and it let me delete the files, but in either Normal
mode Admin or users mode, you cannot delete TIF under Control Panel/
Internet Options. I'll just have to keep an eye on it. Thanks for the
tip about using the directory from the RUN dialog box. That worked in
Safe Mode. .......joe
