Creating %Temp% with a batch file

I use a program on one of my servers which nightly deletes the %temp% directory.  I need this recreated at system logon and I can do this in GPO scripts.  What would the batch file be?  Can we make it so if it sees the TEMP folder missing, it creates a new one?  The problem is, another program we run requires the TEMP folder to run properly.  For some reason, it doesn't automatically create it if its missing.  Please supply syntax.  Thank you

If the environment variable %TEMP% still exist, you could just use

@echo off
mkdir %TEMP%

In case that directory exists, all you get is an error message stating that it already exists, so you can ignore that message.
