    RKill does not "locate" infections, per se. Rather, it is a tool to stop the processes of Rogues that are preventing the running of removal tools such as Malwarebytes' Antimalware.

    Please don't take offense, however, if that isn't a typo and you are really running IE5, your computer is a disaster waiting to happen. The current version is IE8. At a minimum, you should be running IE7.

    Back to the temp files, do the following:

    Download TFC by Old Timer from here (direct download): http://www.itxassociates.com/OT-Tools/TFC.exe
    • First, save any files as TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
    • Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
    • Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
    • Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.

    More info:
    TFC (Temp File Cleaner) will clear out all temp folders for all user accounts (temp, IE temp, java, FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari), including Administrator, All Users, LocalService, NetworkService, and any other accounts in the user folder. It also cleans out the %systemroot%\temp folder and checks for .tmp files in the %systemdrive% root folder, %systemroot%, and the system32 folder (both 32bit and 64bit on 64bit OSs). It shows the amount removed for each location found (in bytes) and the total removed (in MB).

    Before running, it will stop Explorer and all other running applications. When finished, if a reboot is required the user must reboot to finish clearing any in-use temp files.
    -- TFC only cleans temp folders.
    -- TFC will not clean URL history, prefetch, or cookies. Depending on how often someone cleans their temp folders, their system hardware, and how many accounts are present, it can take anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or more. TFC will completely clear all temp files where other temp file cleaners may fail.

    TFC requires a reboot immediately after running. Be sure to save any unsaved work before running TFC.

    Hi, nickfrost.

    It is not advisable to follow advice given to others, the reason being that there are rogues that use Temp files to "hide" valid desktop startup items. With such rogues, clearing temp files will likely result in needing to do a repair install.
