Hi Again Everyone,

 

Just one more question.

 

In Windows 8 is it still safe to delete all files in all Temp folders, even the ones in the Windows directory that you have to jump through hoops to even be able to access to see what is in it?

 

Thanks again for all help anyone can give.

Thank you Grinler, I appreciate you letting me know that :)

 

Btw, it wasn't the one in the windows folder I had to jump through the hoops to take ownership of to open, it was the one in a users folder, I am really glad I did, I had almost a half a gig of files in it.

 

Most likely they were the ones from when they set up my system but geeze, that is a lot of temp files.

 

If I were putting systems together for people, I would take a few minutes and clear out all that junk.

 

Anywho, thanks again :)
