temp files

i noticed some files/folders on the c: drive where my windows installation is. can anyone tell me if they can be deleted:

1. c:\config.msi\ - folder and all contents
2. c:\winnt\temp\ - all contents
3. c:\winnt\security\*.log (4 log files - res1.log, res2.log, edb.log, edb00020.log)

to be on the safe side use the cleanup program provided by win2000 if you are unsure whether this file could be deleted. For those files under the temp folder it is safe to delete. I would really recommend you to delete the log file ,after all it dont take up alot of space. For config.msi it is a installation folder.

1. yes, 2. yes, 3. better not

you say:

"I would really recommend you to delete the log file ,after all it dont take up alot of space"

you mean you recommend not to delete right?
yes, i might afraid that during the uninstallation of the particular program, it might need to refer back,
