Hi folks.

OS is Vista Business
This morning I deleted Temp files using Disk Clean up.
However, after that, if I type "%temp%" in the Start search box, a window comes up with a long list of files going back to 2008.

So the qustion is, why were they not deleted when using Disk Clean up, and I assume that being temp files I can remove them manually.

Run ccleaner go to options / advanced. Untick the 2nd option. It may delete more temp files

Temp files are fair game. Using cmd delete *.* in the temp directory.

Thanks for your comments guys.

Speedie I did that but these files are still there. I can delete them manually but just wondered why Disk Clean up, or CCleaner for that matter does not delete them. No big deal, but just sort of curious.
