.tmp files in windows folder

Recommended Posts

hello.

 

i randomly found two 1+GB .tmp files in C:\windows the other day. i have been running CCleaner regularly for over a year now. both .tmp files where over a year old themselves. not sure where they came from. they were both exactly the same size dated a month apart...

 

is it normal that CCleaner doesnt remove .tmp files from the windows folder? it would be good if CCleaner checked the date of .tmp files to determine whether they can safely be deleted. e.g. more than a month old or something. (i have memory dumps, temporary files and old prefetch data selected)
