start, run, type %temp%, edit, select all, delete

I was thinking of having a wee spring clean and wondered if this was a safe thing to do? I believe I could also find the file (hidden in local settings) and delete the temp files from there.

What's the best way of having a clean up - I believe that disk clean up doesn't delete these?

Thanks VoG - I'll look at that but I'd still like to know if what I suggested is ok to do and won't cause untold grief............

Unless you have very recently installed any programs/Windows updates you can delete the full contents of the Temp folder.

I usually use CleanUp,same as VoG™ or CCleaner (which by default only deletes temp files over 48 hours old) but the method you propose is fine.

gudgulf, thank you for your reassurance - I'll have a look at CleanU too.
