Set the CVSNT temp directory in the control panel to be something else
than your common temp dir. Then you know that these folders and files
are all belonging to CVSNT. You can safely delete all old such items.

The reason the folders hang on might be a script you are running that
does not move out of the temp folder (from which it is started by
CVSNT). Therefore the folder cannot be deleted.
I saw this a few years back with my CVSMailer program, which is called
from loginfo and taginfo. Making the program move out of the temp
folder solved the problem for me, no more lingering temp folders.
