Windows cannot find C:\docume~1\locals~temp\***.exe
  

Many times while accessing any site, particularly in IE6, I get this error message..

Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click start button, and then click search.
What problem is this?

Go to Safe mode and Delete "system.exe" or whatever "***.exe" inside
C:\docume~1\locals~temp\***.exe

Delete everything inside these 2 TEMP folders:
  • C:\WINDOWS\TEMP
  • C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\(USERNAME)\LOCAL SETTINGS\TEMP
It's all junk and useless files. Your problem may get solved by this simple solution.

This was really helpful for me. I was really worried that my system was attacked by some virus. Luckily I read your post. Thank you very much. Keep up the good work.
