Please can somebody explain what the following Temp files do. "Setup log files" "Web Client/publisher Temp Files" and "Compress old Files". What would happen if I delete them, will I do any harm?
Any help would be appreciated.

You can delete "Setup log files" and "Web Client/publisher Temp Files" perfectly safely.

"Compress old Files" does not delete anything - it compresses files that have not been used for a while. This is only worth doing if you are short of disk space. If you do let Disk Cleanup compress old files they will then appear in blue in Windows Explorer.

Disk Cleanup Wizard

Windows 98, Me, 2000, and XP come with a Disk Cleanup Wizard that streamlines the process of clearing out unwanted temp files. To access the Wizard, click on the Start button and choose Programs (All Programs in Windows XP). Then choose Accessories, System Tools, and Disk Cleanup.
