    I permanently deleted the Temp folder. Is there a way to recover?


    Okay so um... I was trying to find ways on how to remove Virus/Malware on my computer and it just leads me to permanently deleting my temp folder, not the temporary files, I meant the actual temp folder. I feel pretty stupid and I'm actually scared right now because I think permanently deleting my folder will permanently destroy my computer. Is there a way to recover from this? Cause I got a feeling that my computer is starting to act weird like how my wireless headphones starts randomly disconnecting.

    :)

    about temp folder

    Hi Hector,

    The temp folder provides work space for programs. Yes they can be deleted. We suggest that you follow the steps provided by Sangeeta Sarkar on how to delete Temp files on this

    link
    . You may also type in the search box Disk Cleanup and hit enter. It will evaluate your disk and give you a list of folders sizes that can be deleted.

    Keep us updated on the status of the issue. We will be glad to assist you further.

    Regards.
