Delete the temp folder in Vista?
  

In VISTA, do I delete the files in the folder:
my name \ Local Settings \ Temp without problem since I always stock 6 gig there?
If yes, is this case is similar to XP, either:
C: \ Documents & Settings, my name \ Local Settings \ Temp?

Yes, the worst that can happen is that a file is in use and Vista is going to propose to ignore it and it will continue to erase the other.

I had to manually delete the temp folder!

Someone knows a site that shows how Big Brother deactivate on vista?

Because it becomes boring when you can not do what you could do easily with XP!

Panel \ User Accounts \ Enable or disable the User Account Control

Remove the checkmark to "Use the audit ..."
