Is it normal to get hundreds of temp/reg files over just a few hours?

Recommended Posts

I probably clean my "temp" folder and use the Disk Cleanup once every few days. In all my years of having a pc (And various Windows versions) I've never really had temp files build up. Well after I bought a new hard drive, formated it, installed Win 7 I noticed something odd.

 

In this folder:

C:\Users\<my name>\AppData\Local\Temp

 

I have lots of these (picture below) form over just a few hours. Example I last cleaned that folder about 7 hours ago and already I am back up to 143 of them! What could be causing so many to be made? I've never had this problem before, usually I have barley any temp files. Obviously it isn't world ending just weird why so many get made all the sudden.

They're 1 KB or less...why bother cleaning it out at all?

 

I clean mine out maybe once a year. :lol: Windows does a pretty good job of cleaning it out over time.

Well because 143kb takes up my small 1 terrebyte HD. :P lol

 

Yeah I'm just going to clean it less often. Being an OCD geek is fun! ^.^

Why do you care about them anyway? :dunno:

Ignore them, and clean them once in 3-4 months.
