One comes from programs installing or uninstalling, the other from your
surfing on the web.

Yes, but it doesn't remove *all* of them. Download and run Crap Cleaner,
free, from http://www.ccleaner.com/ which does remove *all* of them and
it's recommended that you do so on a regular basis. Also, unlike Windows
Disk Clean Up, you can configure it to not delete any cookies you would
like to save.

In this context, you may see the "Temporary files" listing in Disk
Cleanup. "Temporary internet files" is a subset of "Temporary File". And
yes Disk Cleanup is "safe".

I don't know, but apparently every virus now invades through your
temporary folders. Apparently they ****ed that up too.

Temporary files may be created during installations, but that's far from the
only situation in which they are created.
