Go to View>Details, and also View by Modified and look at the time they've been in your computer. Disregard the log files, they have several extensions, as they change date nearly every time you boot up. Only the most recent ones need to be suspect.

But if you really suspect that you have malware, go to that forum and consult with the pros.

I am not worried about if there spyware or malware cause my anti-spyware software comes back clean.

I just wonna know if some of these are to be deleted etc. But no offence, but I would like this comformation from a trusted stuff member.

you can delete anything in the TEMP folder after a reboot (although some files may be in use and created at startup---and those you will not be able to delete.

The only other file you can delete is the file that ends in .tmp

the rest are all real files that are generally needed

you know, you've posted at least one of these before....what are you looking for?

Seriously, if you're looking to clear space, hunting for single files is a slow way to go about it.
