Default Sure

Of course you can,it's your computer isn't it ?
It's up to you to decide and remember why their there.Thats the tricky part.You must have created this folder called Documents and Settings\Walid Almasri\Local Settings\Temp
Doesn't really matter.
Just delete the contents,not the folders and you'll be OK.

But figure out who planted this on your pc.

The computer only creates it if you ask it to.It's your private domain.
on "Your Computer" I have many folders for this on mine.If i want to delete them,why should i wonder why ?
Of course you can delete whats in there if you don't need it anymore.
You can even delete the folder too.You have my permission.
As for myself i keep everything as large hd's are real cheap.
Just for the record though there are some sneeky tricks played and Mysterious folders show up.Please see the humor in the above.

Of course,but a directorys contents is the issue.
I delete my contents all the time.
This is about what you create,and you bloody well know this.
This is my way if anyone is interested,
Autoexec.bat
SET TEMP=C:\TEMP
SET TMP=C:\TEMP
