I do not agree to an additional amount.
Tech Support Specialist: Cody, Senior Systems Administrator replied 7 months ago

if its in the temp folder it could be anything. Very hard to determine, its safe to delete anything in this appdata/local/temp folder

You can run this cleanup program here if you want it done automatically. https://1drv.ms/u/s!AsR9VzitHjdKgsIOlnDRSGQGhRS7Vg

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
