CID temp folder change?

Is it possible that the CID temp folder suddenly changed? It seemed as if until yesterday, that the temp folder that CID used was %USERPROFILE%\local settings\temp

Its painfully obvious now that CID is using %windir%\temp now.

Has it always been that way, or is this a recent development, or am I just woefully confused.

I read on the inter-webs that can be configured with the ‘user set’ string: browser.cache.disk.parent_directory

That didn’t previously exist, and when implemented doesn’t over-ride the %windir%\temp location.

Perhaps that folder is specific to CID install on Server 2003? Because WinXP installed CID clearly is using %USERPROFILE%\local settings\temp (which is what IE8 used). And all of my Defense+ HIPS rules are predicated on that. I discover all that is broken and had to change it to accommodate %windir%\temp

Any clue? Or do I need to buy one?

Apparently the temp download folder is constrained by specifically the TMP - not TEMP - environmental variable; the User Profile var takes precedence over the System TMP var.
