I am running Windows 98SE and am really not having any problems. However, we were having problems with our computers at work (where I run WinXP) and got to talking with a technician who came by to help us out. When I told him how many temp files I have on my PC at home, he was astounded and told me I could safely get rid of them. If you can believe it, I have so many temp files in the C:\Windows\Temp folder, it is taking up 2.57 GIGS OF MY HARD DRIVE!!
As you might imagine, I would love to get rid of them and retrieve that disk space, but there's a problem. There are so many files, it takes a ridiculous amount of time just to do a search for various *.tmp and *.dmp files (let alone all the other crap in there), let alone to actually try deleting them.
I have tried Disk Cleanup, but for whatever reason, even though I checked off the box to wipe out the Windows Temp files, it tells me that the folder is taking up 0kb of disk space, and it doesn't get rid of anything. What do I do now? I want to get rid of this stuff.
