I Need Help!
I was wondering if it is a issue to delete files in "Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Temp". I am really looking if it is safe to delete the "Documents and Settings\Kenny Hartwick\Local Settings\Temp" files.

Thanks!

I don't know who Kenny Hartwick is, but deleting temp files is NOT a problem. Just get his permission, willya.

edit: if you click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup you'll run a nice little routine that lets you select those, among other, files to remove as well as a file compactor for rarely used files.

In addition to what CCT said, you can download CCleaner and Analyze your drive and Run Cleaner. These are the only safe methods for deleting Temp files.
