Large numbers of temp files is very common, IMO even worse when you shop online. The temps should be cleaned on on a regular basis, you can use "disk Cleanup" in accessories or like many of us use an automatic cleaning program.

Honesty & Integrity Above All!

these are just occurring not in the temp internet folder but the "temp" directory and not due to surfing or shopping or anything like that
