I wouldn't, alot you can but until you find out what some of them contains.

You can clean your computer up by double clicking on My computer and right click the C drive and goto properties & click on disk clean up on bottom.

And you can also right click internet explorer and go down to properties and clean out your history and cookies and also your internet logs from there.

They are .tmp files, they contain temporary data from every document ever opened for purposes of holding that data until the next "save" is clicked. It is perfectly okay to delete them.

Although, disk cleanup does the same thing (deletes .tmp files)

Hi brahm, I quess so, I'm just tight when deleting things before I know, even when it comes to the windows directory/ system32 Some temp contain uninstall or other commands info NO? Not sure on this one. I never really bothered with my temps but just used the clean option.

It's just I my self might not delete everything before I know for sure.

thanks brahm.
