Please find out what files are in that temporary directory and it will help to understand what's happening. Click Focus button in message box.

It may be file unpacked from archive to be opened in external viewer or editor. If you close Salamander before viewer/editor, the file is not deleted because it is still opened in viewer/editor. You can delete such files on next start of Salamander when you click Yes in this message box.

I use both servant salamander 2.0 and servant salamander 2.5. In servant salamander 2.0 this effect is not observed. Can these two programs properly interact?

It is not tested to work seamlessly in that combination, I don't understand why you use both versions.

I use both servant salamander 2.0, 2.5, because 2.0 is stable version. I added it to another file unrar.dll unpacking archives rar. But the features in version 2.0 does not always suffice, for example, it does not extract 7zip archive files and does not shows doc.
I moved on to focus folder SALED7.tmp, it turned out to file mvoyager.chm, which I apparently unpacked for reading.

Version 2.5 and 3.0x are also stable. I think you can forget 2.0 and use only newer version.

So everything is OK, you have unpacked file, opened it in help viewer and then closed Salamander before help viewer, so file could not be deleted, so it's deletion is offered on next start of Salamander.

Thank you for the clarification.
Is it possible to customize the Servant Salamander 2.5 so that it deletes the temporary folders on startup without asking?

No. I don't think it is safe to delete these folders without asking.

I found a simple solution. Need to create a bat file with the content
Erase /S /Q "% USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temp\SAL *"
rd /S /Q "% USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temp"
and prescribe it to autostart
