When I go to clean out my temp folders in Safe Mode I usually do so having opted to show hidden files and folders including those of the operating system. I often come across "index.dat" and "desktop.ini." files in "Temp" sub-folders like "Content.IE5". As they belong to a temp folder is it safe to delete them eventhough Windows warns us that these are system files that if deleted might affect any programs they might have served.

If you want to be cleaning out temp files and folders download ccleaner from http://www.piriform.com but only use it as a file cleaner don't use it as a registry cleaner, as registry cleaners are not very reliable, but as for file cleaners this is the best one out there ! :thumbsup:

If life is not an option then why are we not given the option in the first place !
