Default questions about deleting a folder

okay, i found out that this folder is taking a major amount of my hardrive.

C:\Documents and Settings\Chris\Local Settings\Temp

that would be the locations.

its filled with alot of files.

i was wondering if i could just delete it all but, will it cause anything to make my windows mal function?

DO NOT DELETE THAT FOLDER. However, you can delete what is in there. As long as you are not using it

i would prolly use disk cleanup to empty that folder.

start | programs | accessories | system tools | disk cleanup

it will allow you to purge data from other temp folders as well

I'm also a fan of CCleaner. Not only will it clean up space in your Temp folder and other various areas, but it has a pretty decent registry cleaner, too.

I was at the game Sunday in a skybox. WOW, what a way to watch a game! Wish I could do that more often.
