    Temp folder %temp %


    Hello
    I recently installed 2 updates from NVIDEA.
    I have run disc clean up and Ccleaner>Windows but this attachment says it all.
    I could use 'Unlocker' but do not want to do damage if the file should not be removed.
    Do you have any suggestions?
    TY
    Peter

    It's good to be cautious. That Folder may be important to your graphics adapter and removal could cause problems. However, I have deleted such Folders without issues except once and all I had to do was re-install the drivers.

    That's the compiled shader cache used to optimize operation when running games and everything else that uses compiled shaders. Leave it alone. It's not that great in size anyway.

    If you want to delete it anyway open your nVidia Control Panel and untick the shader cache box and restart, but performance may suffer.

    >>My PC was running fine before those updates so I decided to image back 3 days and it works fine - the folder is gone too. I have made notes of your information for future use and thank you.
