please help me, i want to get into web development and i have chosen that Atom is the best text editor for me, but i cannot get passed this error, i have searched all over the internet on how to fix it, but still no luck, deleting the whole ‘Temp’ folder is not an option, it is 35gb and i don’t know what is in there, if i delete it, what will happen, will it affect my pc?

Thank you,

ibutura
