I noticed I have quite a number of temp files and folders
in the temp folder (in documents and settings). The list is
as follows:
Folders:IS9F~tmp, IS10~tmp, IS134~tmp,
HSPerfdata_<user>,ns_tmp, nsq6.tmp, pft3~tmp, picasa, vwpt,
ZGtemp,
{5809e7cf-4dcf-11d4-9875-00105ace7734}
{968c3403-53ac-44da-b6c5-2a902bd8bbe9}
{6BE2A4A4-99FB-48ED-AE1E-4E850389F804}
~adtmp
{53123982-7785-4FE7-B47C-567E4ED7A31C}

Some of these folders do carry installer files used to
install software such as sun java, fellowes mediaface
labeler, systemboard drivers, zipgenius, and picasa.

Files in temporary folder are:
1e8bd6, 12aebd, 87858, a3b1c (mst)
aspnetsetup, dotnetfx, drvldr, IDSinst, javainstall,
java_install_reg, jusched, LSinstall, mmmxl, netfx, netfxsl,
netfxupdate, Roxioinstall, SNDmon, SNDsetup55, SNDunin,
SNDupdater55I (all text files)
..tmp files include fee5e75c, plf1, set1, set2, set3, setb0
and have some size.
html files = wahtmltmp00, swtmp
xml = jupdate1.5.0

I am questioning whether these files & folders can be
removed without compromising either an uninstall or actual
program or component operation.

Yes, you can delete files in TEMP folders. If you are unsure, reboot and
check the folder(s) again. XP will not let you delete a file that is in
use. Also if you just installed software you should reboot. Then check the
folder(s) again. Some programs require these files after a reboot. It is
good practice to always reboot after installing any software.

You can delete all the Temp files. You can set a cron job to do this for
you - just man cron. Oh wait, you're asking about *Windows*! I thought
you said loudly not long ago that you were switching to Linux.

You can delete the Temp files in Windows, too.

That will happen on a job like this. That is just the type of thing that
can happen. :-)

Reboot.

Open the Temp Folder. Hit Ctrl+A. Hit Shift + Del. If XP doesn't want you
deleting something, it will tell you but I doubt you will get any burbs.

He made a stab, I saw a couple of questions He asked on a Linux NG about
MandrivaLinux LE 2005, apparently He couldn't comprehend the feedback.

If he couldn't understand Mandriva, there's no hope then. (Not a slam at
Mandriva - I've tried it and it is very nice; I just love SuSE better.)
