Batch File to Clean Temp Folder

It is necassary sometimes to clean temporary files because they can waste large amount of space on your system drive. You can download one of system cleaners or even pay to its developer. But you should be aware of different kinds of malware in these cleaners. It is much better to use a simple batch script like this:
REM ********************************************
REM * Cleaning example script *
REM ********************************************
REM * This script shows how to clean the folder*
REM * from temporary files *
REM ********************************************
REM This string specifies that no details will be shown
@ECHO off
REM Change current forder to the temp folder
REM Delete all files with extension starting with ~
DEL *.~*
REM Delete all files with extension TMP
DEL *.tmp
REM Add your extensions!
ECHO Press Enter!
Hope this script is quite simple and you can understand what it does from the comments, but if you have any questions you are always welcome. Leave comments under this post or send a letter to

How to Make Changes in Windows Registry Using Batch Files?

 It seems that the simplest way here to make changes in Windows registry is to use REG files. These are special text files that function in Windows for making necessary Windows registry changes without searching long for the key in the tree shown by RegEdit. As I see it, the matter goes about making batch changes in the case you can manage without BAT files at all: you may write several registry keys into one REG file and the keys will be changed while REG file is launched. But if you need to generate registry keys dynamically, BAT file can perform REG file generating and launching. The only question is how to create batch file.
REG-files have a simple format. In fact it is a text file written as follows:

Here, it’s obvious, instead of lines in brackets you should put the real path to the branch in registry which parameters you are intend to change (do not omit brackets). The names of these parameters should be quoted and the same for their values, in case of line parameters. For DWORD and HEX parameters, as in example, write its type and put colon after equals in the line. Do not separate the values somehow – changes in parameters, starting with a new line in brackets, will be made to a new address. At the beginning of the file put the line “Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00” (without quotation marks) – this line is necessary for the Registry Editor to determine whether this file includes the keys for making registry changes – it is very important to include them into REG files. Also, do not forget to name the extension of the output file as .REG.
To compose the file use “>>” - command. That is a standard way to convert BAT file data into a text file. For making changes in the registry you use regedit utility in which REG file’s name should be used as a parameter, for example, “regedit crack.reg” (without quotation marks).
