Can I Delete These Folders & Files

By wbecker ·
Can I safely delete all folders and files in the "Temp" and the "Temporary Internet" folders that are within: Documents&Setting, then MyName, then Local settings folder? They contain 157 MB or 4,691 files, and 20MB or 2,422 files respectively. The files included are a wide variety, i.e. .tmp, .dir, .wmf. gif, .bmp, etc.

Thanks, Walt

Yes.
But it may slow your internet surfing down, as those things are cached for speed.

It is generally safe to delete any file in a temp folder that is over 2 weeks old.

I usually delete files that are not from the current day when I clean up a PC.

Don't forget to check the C:\Windows\Temp folder
