Temporary files are usually files that are designated as safe to delete,
this can include cached information from the Internet, left over files a
particular program uses to install itself. You can safely delete them, but
if you have program such as Microsoft Office which saves certain temporary
information which is used in the installation of certain updates and
patches, its best you thoroughly check to make sure you are not deleting it.
