IE7 - Cannot see all details of Temporary Internet Files

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Sometimes specific folder icons disappea, May 13, 2010.

  1. Hello all,
    I have WinXP+SP3 and IE7.

    Previously, while using IE6, I was able to see all the details of the files
    in folder
    "Temporary Internet Files", including file size, a.s.o.

    Now, with IE7, when browsing this folder with Windows Explorer, using the
    Detailed View, the column titles on the header bar of the right pane appear
    empty (without the usual titles Name, Size, Last Accessed Date, a.s.o. ), but
    only showing the sorting arrow.

    Choosing VIEW--> CHOOSE DETAILS from the menu only shows a list of check
    boxes, but also without titles.

    Some very important information is missing at all from the display,
    like the FILE SIZE column.

    Also, Right Clicking on a file does not work.

    Trying to view the Temporary Files from inside the Browser using Internet
    Options -->Browsing History -> Settings -> View Files also shows incomplete
    information.

    Browsing any other folder in Windows Explorer works ok, showing complete
    information when using the Details view.

    Any help or explanation would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks & Best Regards,
    Iudith Mentzel

    Hi,
    1. (Not likely to help, but a very easy test to run.)
    Start Internet Explorer without add-ons by right-clicking the IE icon on the
    desktop. Choose Start without add-ons.
    or
    from Start> Programs> Accessories> System tools> Internet Explorer (no
    add-ons)
    If the problem goes away, a browser add-on is causing it.

    For troubleshooting information see:
    IEBlog Troubleshooting and Internet Explorer’s (No Add-ons) Mode:
    http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2006/07/25/678113.aspx

    2. See if a third-part program is causing the problem. Does the problem
    persist after starting the computer in Safe Mode?

    3. Go to http://iefaq.info/index.php?action=artikel&cat=35&id=133&artlang=en
    Read the information on that page- especially the "Usage" paragraph (Usage:
    unzip the download and run the cmd...)
    Download (near the bottom of the page) and run the appropriate script for
    your browser and OS.

    Hope this helps,
