A good friend of mine, who works for the XXX, sent me a great little program called "Temp File Cleaner".
I suspect it was written in Batch Language and then Compiled into an .exe file.

It goes through the entire HD, finding and deleting the temp files for all users, and it does it in just a few short seconds. For a daily cleanup, I've put that little program in my "Startup" folder.
I call that my FREE Daily Maid Service.

That prevents the senseless build up of temp files on my PC.

Another great way to clean out junk, is to run MS's Disk Cleanup. (It comes with every version of Windows) I run it in Extended Mode, to get rid of even more junk files. Extended mode is well documented on the web, how to set it up and how to run it.

Then for an In-Depth cleanup, weekly (not weakly) I run WinUtilities, to check for and remove junk files and to clean out the registry of temp and dead entries.
I really like keeping my PC(s) as squeaky clean as possible.

It's all do'able, and just requires a little bit of effort.

Cheers Mate!

PS: I'm a working PC tech, and I hate to go to a computer that I've never seen before and be confronted with hundreds of thousands of temp files and Tracking Cookies.
My little "Temp File Cleaner" gets rid of the temp files and "Super Anti-Spyware FREE" will get rid of all the Tracking Cookies. Worse case, was one PC with over 15,000 tracking cookies on it. Yikes!
