Windows 2008 R2 Standard - 45GB of cab_*_* files in C:\Windows\temp

Hello,

Looking at the cause of low disk space on a Windows 2008R2 Standard, I see that the C:\Windows\Temp folder is full of files named in the following manner:
cab_12768_2, cab_12252_2, etc.  There are a few log files too.

Is this folder content safe to delete?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Hahaha.  :).  Thanks.  Just wanted a second opinion.  Thanks.
I have myself run into this many times - a lot of leftover stuff/crud in the Windows\Temp directory.  Every time I see this, I delete those files.  So far, no one has ever called me back and said that they were missing something related to that deletion.
