virus threat path

virus threat path

virus threat path

I keep getting a threat detection on my anti virus with the path below:


When looking up the path i get to Windows folder but there's no cookies folder on this path, anyone know why this is?

RE: virus threat path

Do you have your folder options set to show hidden files and folders?  If setting that still doesn't show them then try setting the view to show protected operating system files.

Hope this helps.

Please help us help you.  Read Tek-Tips posting polices before posting.

RE: virus threat path

didn't work, still not able to see the cookies folder.

RE: virus threat path

Copy and Paste the path, e.g. C:\users\RodField\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies\ directly into Explorer...

Certain folders are protected from viewing using the normal click navigation, e.g. the IE cache, you can get around this by using the direct path...

RE: virus threat path

Alternately, you could use CCleaner or IE's tools to clean out your cookie cache.
