    You can completely configure it to your own needs; it's
    quite safe if used correctly. See:

    Ok, I might try it. One of the largest "junk" files it found and wants
    to delete are the windows setup files. Ok? It will send them to the
    recycle bin, but that won't help me if I can't reboot afterwards. Just
    nervous about this. Sorry, but thanks for all the advice and support.

    All .gid/.fts files are safe to delete permanently; they are
    recreated "on the fly" as you use help files.

    >"Internet Explorer cache" files would have been deleted permanently
    >------------------------------------------------------------

    <snip>

    I suggest that you take the Internet Explore cache out of
    HDValet's options -- use the Control Panel / Internet Options
    manually, as per my signature.

    The above mscreate.dir files are created by MS install
    routines, and are used for uninstallation. Unless there
    is the possibility that you will uninstall items, they are
    safe to delete. For further details see:

    The TEMP folder and "Temporary" files are completely safe to
