To see the contents of the \Temp folder in Vista, click the Windows Orb (Start) > Run (if the Run command is not there, go to All Programs > Accessories and then click Run), type %temp% and press Enter.

All the files that show can be safely deleted, there may be a few obstinate ones that refuse to be deleted.
