Harddisk full, 10GB Temporary Internet Files?

I just saw that my temporary Internet Files Folder under C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\ used more than 10 GB of Space. After deleting all the contents of the folder, the folder still had more than 10 GB. Looking with Hidden files visible and “Show system files” activated, did not show anything. After opening the command prompt I found out that the Temporary Internet Folder contained a few more folders, one of those was called “Enclosure”, which could not be deleted using the command line (access denied).

By explicitly typing the Location “C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Enclosure” into the Explorer Address bar, the folder was opened and its contents could be deleted. Most files were from the “Q” Application which comes with the Media Center. The application downloaded many files for its RSS / Podcast Reader.
