I went to C:\documents and settings \ my name\local settings\temp\tm. There is a bunch of stuff in there. I was looking for a couple of things that was stuck in there by a program and I deleted them. My question is can I delete the rest of the things in that folder?

ya but u can just use the system cleaner that comes with xp

Go to my computer>on your hard drive click properties then click on disk cleanup and it will remove your files, "the safe way" you could say, Yet im pretty sure their perfectly safe to delete but in case make a restore point

go to start>help and support>>>find "undo changes to your computer with system restore" located under pick a task. And create a restore point then delete the temp folder.

Just do everything except compressing your files. Depending on HD speed when you might need them you gota blow em’ back up.
