Cannot delete temp files in IE8 under Vista

This isn't the usual problem.
I used Superantispyware to delete tracking cookies and one of them is Cookie:james@atdmt.com/
I then found it was still there so I tried removing it manually which didn't work. However if I try to open it I get the popup as shown below.
There is nothing in the registry related to it so I am baffled
Note that because this one file isn't seen using the delete files on exiting IE8 doesn't delete all the subsequent files either

Not me  Shocked
I don't think that would help as Vista makes the files unviewable by  Windows Explorer - you need to access them through Control Panel or Internet Explorer.

pierre_pierre - fixed it.  Grin Grin Grin
Freecommander removed all files related to atdmt.
But IE8 still saw it - until I unticked the top box.
Cheeky so and so it had it in a cache to help macromedia work better
