McAfee QuickClean

When I run McAfee QuickClean the “Temporary Files Cleaner” cleans everything out of this file except old McAfee files.
( C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Temp )

Is it ok for me to delete these files? ( McInstallTemp, McTemp )
Is there a reason why McAfee won’t clean them? :confused:

I tried running “Delete Browsing History” (IE8 / Tools) and I only checked the “Temp files”, “Cookies” and “History” boxes, that didn’t work either. :confused:

We are told this is by design. Some McAfee files are kept for a reason, what I'm not quite sure.
