How do I clear out my temp folder?

Here's how to clear out your temporary folder in XP.

Click on ‘Start’ and then ‘Run’ and in the run window box type %Temp% and click OK. A folder will appear containing loads of files and folders.

To remove everything inside the temp folder, choose ‘Edit’ and then ‘Select All’ from the menu.

Note: If you're prompted that there are hidden files in this folder, just click on OK to bypass the message. Any hidden files still in the temp folder probably aren't going to cause a problem.

Now choose ‘File’ and then ‘Delete’ from the menu and confirm that you want to delete the files at the ‘Confirm Multiple File Delete’ window that appears.

After all of the files have been deleted you can close the window and empty your Recycle Bin to permanently remove the files from your PC.

If this doesn’t sort the problem out try doing this in Safe Mode (F8 before Windows starts)
