On my Dell Inspiron 8500, XP home, sp2, I have only 40mb and want to use them efficiently. Recently, I discovered that I had a file in the dir: C:Documents and SettingsMartinLocal settingsTempGLC1CC.tmp with a size of 1.69 GB!
Another file (GLC1FC.tmp, 884 MB) is in same dir.

I have no clue where these files come from and really would like to delete them and release some space. But does anyone know if they are important for my Win or any other application or game??

Hope someone can help me!

You can safely delete everything in there - I empty it everyday with no problems as a result of doing so. It's where applications put temporary files during installation and also used as a 'cache' for temporary files when cd/dvd burning, but unfortunately the application doesn't remove them when they are no longer needed.

One note, generally it is best not to remove files with today's date, they can be in use.
