sorry, not using XP. I think if you go start - search - files and folders and then search for *.tmp this will bring up all temporary files, highlight hte top one, scroll down and press shift and click the bottom one so they are all highlighted, right click and click delete.

Don't know how effective this is for what you need so maybe try a trial version of cybersrub (a google searchshould find it)
