XML extensions?

In my C:\Documents and Settings file is a Temp file containing many files with a XML extension.

Google says they are associated with PHP which is described as a server-sidded HTML embedded scripting language.

Question: What purpose do they serve on my run-of-the-mill Dell 4600 and can I delete them?

I don't know what they are, but if they are in your Documents and Settings/Username/Local Settings/Temp folder then it is alright to delete them.

I regularly clear my temp folder out, although I find that any files or folders created "today", (whatever todays date is), will not delete until tomorrow.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
