My girlfriend just switched from a pc and we are in the process of organizing her huge huge collection of files. One thing we have noticed is that there are a ton of hidden files that we don't need. These are nearly all Microsoft word .tmp files and start with a ~

Spotlight won't show these files, even after I did the terminal command to show hidden files in the finder. So the question is: how do I get rid of all of these files?

In a Finder search window, click on Kind, Other, and add invisibles and system files. That should allow you to see all of them.
