DeAnna, in my \Windows\Temp file there are lots of Folders as well as
Files. Is it safe to delete *everything* in the temp folder, including
all those sub-folders? Is there ever anything in a temp folder that is
crucial that you would *not* delete? Do you only delete anything with
In the directory C:\Windows\Temp you'll see a bunch of files that begin
~ and end in .tmp. The names don't really matter -- they're all bogus.
there are any files in there when you first start your computer, DELETE
THEM. Don't worry, you CANNOT hurt your system by doing this. I've seen
computers that had literally thousands of files in the temp directory
had gotten so bad that the owners couldn't even boot windows, let alone
start a program.
