yup, delete away. Just don't delete the folder itself. All that it is, is a temporary storage space for downloaded files that you chose to open rather than save.

thanks for the reply

there are two other temp folders
C:\WINDOWS\Temp
C:\temp

what do these two temp folders do? why not one unified temp folder?
