Can someone advise what the following are and can they be deleted.
Click on local disc C
Click on documents and settings
Click on name
Click on local settings
Click on temp.
There are then a lot of files/folders
Some start with DF FOR EXAMPLE
DF1511610099162984temp.
There are a lot of this particular type
And there are others which start with a different number.
Are these taking up space on the drive and can they be safely removed.

The second link worked for me.

To answer the question - Yes, all Temp files can be deleted. I usually go to C:WINDOWS and Delete the Temp Folder containing the temp files. Then restart the PC, Windows will automatically create a new empty Temp Folder. Sometimes Windows may refuse to delete a certain file(s), this is OK and quite normal - Windows will not delete any files which it deems to be important.
