Temporary Files

People think that Temporary Files and Temporary Internet Files are the same, which is not the case. Temporary Files are created by the softwares and Temporary Internet Files are created by your Internet Browser. Temporary Files are also known as TEMP files because the extension of the Temporary Files are TEMP. 

These temporary files are created automatically in your computer and should be removed from your computer automatically as well. The softwares which generates the Temp Files should remove those files also as soon you close that software. For example, if you open Ms-Word and works on a document then you will see that Ms-word has created a temp file as well just for backup purpose. When you close Ms-Word, the temp file will also be removed automatically. But not all softwares follows the same procedure. It can be because of bad software that creates temp files or because of improper shutdown, System crashes or hanging problems, that these temp files remains in your system and starts creating the problems.
