I have never heard of a TrucNguyen folder.
EDIT: Ooops, it's your name.

Most temp folders do not contain anything important but It would worth running your virus scans first. Try MalwareBytes freebie too, which often finds what AV's miss.

To clear out unneeded files from Temp folder you may want to use Ccleaner, a free third party software.

I have never had any issues with the Cleaner part but I would hold off on the registry part. The cleaner will safely clear most temporary files (hopefuly including the ones you are after).

Sorry for not seeing your name in that string - makes more sense now.

Just to add, its not that the CCleaner's registry cleaner is particularly bad, in fact it is probably one of the safest ones. It's just that all registry cleaners are capable of getting it wrong.

Opinions vary but most folk these days say that using registry cleaners on a regular basis does not result in any noticeable improvement in performance, so its not worth taking the risk of screwing things up. Invalid entries (which is what they remove) are mostly ignored by the system anyway.

There are odd times that they can be of value for specific issues but I don't think yours is one of them.
