"Temp" Folder - Part 2

This is the second part of this tutorial on how to increase the performance of your computer without having to format your whole computer.
In this part I'll tell you how to get a few more free space with the "Temp" Folder.

If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7 you just need to go to the Start bar and write: %Temp%
It Should appear something like this.
Double Click on the folder and a series of files will appear. You can erase them all, if the computer doesn't let you erase any just let it stay there.
That way you can clean up to several Gigabytes on your computer. You can just as easily erase the files on your "Trash" folder.

For those who use Windows XP-Pro you would have to use the the Search Tool or C:\Windows\Temp this link.

Now you choose which items you want to clean or erase. And click OK
Now just let it finish the job and you will see that you will have more space on the computer to use

The contacts the sender writes on the "To:" and the "CC:" will be visible to everyone, but the ones on the "BCC:" will be hidden from everyone.
