    When you play movie clips and music clips in firefox the files seem to go into this folder.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Ccleaner does`nt empty this folder for some reason which i gather is because other programs put thing in here as well because the files that are left in here are being used by another program so i cant delete them. Why do the files not just go into my temerary internet folder instead of this temp one.

    I use WMP, do you think that i can change the settings in there to make the files go straight into the temperary internet folder.???

    Thanks in advace.

    It downloads usually to the desktop so i`m unsure why it put stuff in this folder.

    I`ve added the folder to ccleaner and it`s deleted all the stuff that`s not in use. Just a another annoying thing with Xp.

    Go to the firefox downloads manager and hit the "Clean Up" button, and that should delete the files
