Let it rip. - Windows won't let you delete anything in use.

Windows is supposed to clean up all temp files when you shut down the computer. But it is not very good at it. yes, you can delete everything in the temp folder that is older than the day you are on. Sort the files into date order and delete all up to the current day.

I've emptied it many times and never had any problems. Just leave the files in your re-cycle bin for a few days if you're not sure and then you've got the option to restore if anything goes wrong.
