i use win xp pro, here is the path:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files.
also if u have multiple users on ur computer use paths like this:
C:\Documents and Settings\xxxxxxx\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
in the path above xxxx is the name of the user, for example, i call myself john, therefore the path would be:
C:\Documents and Settings\John\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
hope that helps

did u enable the viewing of hidden or system files, because local systems is hidden by windows, just open up windows explorer and paste in the first path i gave before, it should come up, or open the search dialogue from the start meu and type in the path and hit search, should def. come up with results.
