I don't understand what to do at this part on this website: http://consumer.installshield.com/kb.asp?id=Q108334

Delete the contents of the Temp directory.

Choose one of the following methods to delete the contents of the Temp directory.

Note: Do not delete the Temp directory itself. Delete only the files and folders in the directory.

Using a MS-DOS Command
Click Start > Run.
Type deltree /y temp_directory_location\*.*. For example:
deltree /y C:\Windows\Temp\*.*
temp_directory_location is the location of the Temp directory.

A Far easier way to clear out the temp directory would be from my computer

Like so:

1)Open up My Computer.

2)Open C: Local Disk (You may have renamed it, but it will still be C:)

3)Find the Folder Named Temp, or, in some cases, Tmp.

3b) If you cant find it, Try looking in the windows Folder (Ignore the warning not to modify system files, in this case, the Temp Directory doesn't count.)

4) After you have located this folder, open it.

5) Go to Edit, then Select all.

6)Then, before you delete anything, check to make sure there are no .sys Files. these are important Windows files.

7) Hit Delete!

8) And finally, empty your recycle bin.

Hope that helped!
