    I cannot access the Temporary Internet files folder (Access is Denied). Yes,
    I am an administrator! There is no option to change permissions for this
    folder. Avast cannot scan this folder presumably because of permissions. How
    can I fix this?

    Hello,

    You may be trying to scan the compatibility junction in that name which
    is not a folder and does not contain files, instead of the correct
    location, which has changed in Vista.

    The new location is:

    \Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

    Yes, I tried that but now I find my right mouse button no longer works since
    the last Microsoft update so I can't delete anything in Windows Explorer!

    In Windows Explorer, highlight the file you want to delete and push the
    DELETE key!
