Why is my C Drive full of these *.TMP files? This is on Windows 7. Should I go ahead and delete these? Or keep them? Thank you.

    Yes, you can delete .tmp file. Type %tmp% on search box and here it shows several files/ folders, (under your default/ current user log in) just press ctrl and A (select all) now press delete to delete it. Some files can not be deleted at that time, because these files may use by the system. But you almost all files will be deleted and that helps to run your system smoothly.

    One more thing, you can delete the files/folders that can not be deleted in normal start up mode. Reboot the system in safe mode without networking and after entering desktop with your valid user ID/password, you can do the same as described in erstwhile post and this way it is possible to empty the temp folder. Or there are several 3rd party tools (free to use) that can also do the same job.

    If you keep getting lots of them, you may want to tweak you browser and internet settings as to what it keeps and for how long. if you want more info, let us know what browser you use most often.
