Hi all,
Just (after 13 hours and food breaks) installed Nero's latest. Whew, don't forget to use their "Nero Cleanup Tool" first if you don't want to end up eating your keyboard.
Now, I have 700 MB of info in my Documents and Settings/LearnaticSmith/LocalSettings/Temp, after CCleaner and reboot.
Most of the culprits are Nero CAB.RAR files. I ran a Duplicat check and there are many duplicates.
Nero is working good at the moment.
Now, are these CABs safe to delete, or can I just empty my Temp folder in toto?
Thanks for assistance,
Max.
(I have safely deleted 2GB .tmp since starting this post).

Gosh Chaps,
Call off the search.
I ran my CCleaner last night and it scrubbed the errant 'CAB' files for me.
Now, I cannae figger out why as I constantly run CCleaner and it didn't 'loose' them then.
Anyway, another 'Case Closed'.

Thanks Keith,
Will keep this in mind in the future in case I have a panic-attack about loads of excess.
Cheers,
Max.
