Unable to delete temp CD files after buring CD

by karensen / October 24, 2005 4:45 AM PDT

I burn files to a CD from my computer (XP). At the finish I can not delete them becasue of a message that says they are still in use. Help how can I remove these files. I tried removing the CD folder but that doesn't work either. Thanks

amoung many other things , deletes ALL temp files. Great Free program. I un check many items after install and only leave checked those I know I want to loose I.E.: All Internet history, past search lists, download locations etc. You may want to avoid loosing all cookies or autocomplete addresses for instance. 1 st following Link is download & 2nd is list of what each boxed item is. Print out to have at hand during install & uncheking of unneeded boxes.
Important note in YOUR case: By default there is a setting under "options" > Advanced> "only delete temp files older than 48 hours" that you'll want to uncheck for 1st run. You'll be amazed. Enjoy!!
