Internet Options . . .the General tab . . . Settings . . . View Files.

The site of this cache folder can be changed. In order to make sure that you have the location correct go here in Registry Editor:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

. . . and right click on the Cache file and select 'Modify'. The path containing the user's temporary internet files folder will be displayed. See Digital Detective as a source for this information.
