deletting files from local settings folder on Win 2K pro computer

I have a 4 year old PC with the Windows 2000 Pro OS.  I am trying to free up some space on my hard drive.  There are four folders in the C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\ folder: Application Data, History, Temp, & Temporary Internet.   In folder temp there are almost 6 Gb of data and in folder Temporary Internet there is 210 Mb of data.   Can the contents of both these folders be safely deleted?

There is no issues with deleting these, don't delete the folders though just the contents.

Do NOT delete Application Data folder some applications need their state information to be stored on this folder.
I would recommend either to run 'Disk Cleanup' from system tools or use 'CCleaner'
They will automatically delete files that are safe to delete.

Download CCleaner (Freeware) from:
