Is it safe to delete all content from the Windows\Temp folder in Server 2003?

I have over 9GB of files in my Windows\Temp folder. I'm pretty sure it's fine to delete it all, but I wanted to get a second opinion. The excess of files is causing a low disk space error and I really need to clear it all out.

Is it safe to delete everything in the Windows\Temp folder? I'm offering 500 because I need this answer ASAP. I also need more than one response.

Thanks!

Also... When you delete the files it may say that some are in use by Windows.  Simply reboot, go back in and remove the remaining files.
