You can safely delete the files in your Windows\temp folder. Not sure about the others...

You can delete the entire contents of your Windows\Temp folder, but you should leave the cab files in Windows\Java alone.

They're not meant to be unzipped by the user, but they're needed by Windows, which knows exactly what to do with them, I suppose.

Good luck,
