Some items not removed

When shredding files in temp folder & during quick clean 2 files not removed ?

Re: Some items not removed

That is normal behaviour, I normally use a Command Prompt to bring up mine then simply mass delete them.

This is one of my %temp% folders (I multi-boot), before and after cleaning.

Some files will always stay as their processes are in use by the system, until at least the next boot anyway, and even then some will never be deletable or shreddable.
