yes...

I just do this:

Start -> Search -> For Files and Folders -> All files and folders

Then under "All or part of the file name" put in:

*.tmp,~*.*,*.chk

Then click search and delete what it finds.

%systemroot%\ is actually the windows folder

Go here:
C:\documents and settings\<username>\Application Data\Aim\<AIM username>\urlcache\
