Check the date, if it is older than todays, then it is generally thought to be safe to delete. However, I would suggest that you just delete the files (as opposed to holding down the shift button when deleting, as this bypasses the recycle bin), this way if anything is missing you can restore from the recycle bin, after, say a week, with no error boxes telling you that is missing, just empty the recycle bin. Hope this helps.

CrapCleaner is good (despite the nomenclature! - I think that crap is a noun rather than adjective :-} ). click here

Empty temp folders is another good one. click here
