Im trying to create some space on my hard drive and have noticed that ive got 1.4gb of data in the c:\windows\temp folder - is it safe to delete all in there?

sort them by date modified, you should safely be able to delete anything in the temp folder over a day old

But certainly everything with a tmp (or temp) extension.

However, remember, you wont free up this space, until they are deleted from your recycle bin.

Or dump them all the the recycle bin and use all your progs and apps..if they all work empty it.

If you hold down shift and press delete they will be deleted without going to the recycle bin
