Question Local Settings\Temp\ = Delete?

Hey, is it safe to delete everything from my Temp folder? I found spy-ware and went searching for it and found all kinds of crapola in there I definitely don't want or need. Does anyone know the guidelines for deleting the stuff in there. It's a ton of folders and freestanding misc. files. Thanks in advance!

Just imagine if guys weren't weirded out by my boner and stuff...and just wanted to see it. That's the world I one day wanna live in.

You wont need it. What spyware are you using? I recommend Ad-Aware 6, you can DL it off of downloads.com for free.

Also delete your cookies and internet cache regularly.

Yeah, it's cool. That's why it's called Temp, because the contents are supposed to be temporary ... but some programs aren't so well written, and they neglect to remove their temp files (whether on accident, as is the case with legit programs ... or on purpose, as is the case with spyware type stuff) when the program has been exited.

I read a review in PC Mag saying the Spy Bot was better but not by a whole lot.

As far as clearing out the Temp Folder, easiest thing to do (and probably should be done regularly) is to do a Disk Cleanup. Right-Click on the C:\ drive and Left-Click on Properties. Click Disk Cleanup on the bottom right hand corner and check the boxes you want to clean.
