Over 5 GB In temporary folder? CCleaner Help

I usually run CCleaner to clean up my junk files on my other computers. But I just built a new PC and now every time I run CCleaner, it gives me crazy results (in just one day I had over 5GB in my temp folder). Every 5-6 hours I run CCleaner, and I get at least 400 MB removed from my temp folder - and that's not even counting any other files it cleans. Also, it cleans history from Internet Explorer but I never even USED Internet Explorer!! What could be going on?

    Nope, just 1TB HDD
  3. Do you do video editing?

    The only other thing I can think of is as if some program is generating some sort of log, recording stats.

    I do quite a bit of video editing with After Effects and some with Sony Vegas. Could that be the problem?

    Yes, those could be temporary video files in the temp folder. I said could be because i am not sure where these programs put their temp video file. May be go to the forum of the software (I am pretty sure After Effects and Vegas have a forum of its own by Adobe and Sony), and ask people who use the software to confirm that the default folder for temporary video is indeed the temp folder.

    I believe so. Other browsers typically hijack that folder as well, hence why it comes up under "Internet Explorer" when using CCleaner.
