- TIF aren't files, it's a folder to store files in that IE gets from the web.
- What exactly do you mean with "if I click move folder and track back the TIF folder seems to be in the right place".
- Did you try to reset IE back to defaults? That's under "Advanced" and to be done if IE is in an unusable state. Could help.
- If anyone can read that report from sfc it's you. We surely can't. So we can't say what to do, except a reset or a refresh of Windows. But that might be an overkill.

To make W10 boot and install USB sticks. This is free and works so get that done.

As to the Temporary Information Folder or TIF I can write that as we have more RAM today not all web content is written to the HDD.

I wish I could find your goals here. maybe it's as simple as using WGET to fetch a web page's contents?
