Yes, and DO delete all temp (*.tmp) files - they can take enormous amount of space (I saw >200Mb once)

Okay, another stupid question...I went to delete the temp files last night. I say two temp file folders...one that said just temp, another that was a temp internet file.

#1 - I assume I want to delete both, correct?

#2 - When I went to do so, I got a message that asked me if I wanted to do that as it would effect the program (Note - I had attempted to delete the entire folder instead of the contents). Can I delete the folder in its entirety or do I need to delete each and every file within? There were quite a few. If I am to avoid deleting the folders and just "empty" the contents, how's a quick way to do that?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Scott
