I recommend that you use a variety of them eunice although i would recommend microsoft anti-spyware and ad-aware
If you want to remove all temporary files (whether internet or not) you can use CCleaner (you can download it at http://www.ccleaner.com)
PS. the symbol ~ means that it is temporary and you can delete them with no problem to your systems, although these files are usually hidden

don't forget the system could be using them files that why you can not delete them in normal mode, don't worry about them as dyserq said ccleaner is a good program to clean your system i would say the best.
