Just been 8 hours reinstalling my Windows 10 pc from scratch After all the updates, re-authorizing of VSTs, installation of necessary programs and everything else I opened up Disk Clean up and selected system files. My temporary internet folder is showing 3.45GB and won't delete. I've looked in the folder and it's empty. I googled a bit and apparently loads, and loads of people have had the same problem for ages without being able to get a fix. Microsoft are obviously no help. So there you go...no big deal really but really annoying for someone who wants stuff to work as it should. Now I need to sleep. Check your folder in disc clean up and maybe you can lie awake tonight thinking about it too :).

Did you try going to the old Control Panel > Internet Options > General tab and hit "Delete..." under Browsing History?

Easy fix: buy a new computer, and new copies of all your software. Never launch a web browser. (Sorry, not helpful, I know... :| )
