Do you delete your temp files daily

Hi guys
How good it is to delete the temp files daily? Do you perform this activity daily? Is it a good practice?

Re: Do you delete your temp files daily

I never bother, unless doing a CCleaner run. If you delete them daily, most of them will just be recreated by Windows etc.

So you pressed CCleaner button daily to empty the garbage from your PC.

Re: Do you delete your temp files daily

No, I rarely bother doing a CCleaner run. I avoid crapware at all costs so my temp folder is about 95% Windows files which are automatically replaced if you delete them anyway.

I use ZoneAlarm, AdBlock, WOT and common sense (all free).

Re: Do you delete your temp files daily

Nope, I don't even care that much about them. I think I get rid of 'em once per month, when I use CCleaner. I also use it for other useless stuff.

Not really daily, but I delete them from time to time. I remember once my laptop was running really slow. CCleaner saved me too and deleted all the useless stuff.
