I have a Compac Presario 2100 laptop. I have been using my disc cleanup for quite awhile. It helps my computer to run faster. This morning, I went to use it, i was able to get it to delete all that I wanted it to except webclient/publisher temporary files. How can I get it to delete, whats on it? I hope that you can understand this. Like I said in my introductory post, I am a novice. So I hope that I explained it all right. Thank you and have a great day.

I have done some research about this on some search engines, and what seems to be the case is that some portion of these (+/-32Kb) cannot be deleted. It was suggested somewhere that the 32Kb is a "place holder."

In the grand scheme of things, 32Kb is probably not very important.
Perhaps some other expert can come up with a definitive answer.

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Thanks to everyone that answered my question. I now have 0 mb at my webclient/publisher. I don't think that it was being used for anything. At least I hope not. Thanks again.
