    AppData Folder


    How do I access app data folder in 8.1. I cant find it. I need to manually remove some folders hiding in there containing, amongst other things, snap do bug.???? I used to check it regularly in 7, but cant find it in 8 and now 8.1. Spy Hunter 4 is finding these things but says deleted then next check they are back again.

    In file explorer go to the view tab and select "hidden items". You will then see it under your user as below.

    Hope this helps.

    I am looking for a particular folder called INetCookies, allegedly in appdata, it contains the ad bugs like double click. I have hidden files revealed but cannot see it.
