    Sometimes, I would say 2 out of every 5 times I turn my computer on and in the trash is a folder called windows temp I was just wondering why this happens and if there was anything I could do to avoid it.

    It might help to know what Microsoft based programs you've been running.

    Windows Media Player, MS Office, IE.

    It sounds like you're finding left over cache files from your last session.

    Same thing happens to me except some of the files are from Mail.app or Address Book. I have no idea why it happens.

    Is that necessary?

    I've noticed the 'Recovered Files' folder appear (seemingly) randomly too. :confused:

    Not really. I do it out of habit though.



    Same, but I don't get anything about Windows in there.
