Everything in that temp folder is okay to delete. If you have adware files in your temp directory, I would suggest getting adaware, et. al., and thoroughly checking you system.

As a rule, files land in temp after an install procedure (among other reasons), so if you recognize those, give your system a good check and clean.

The TEMP folder is used for when you download a file, to sometimes some software uses it when it's installing. Anything in the TEMP is safe to delete, since it will be deleted anyways when you do a DISC CLEANUP.
