You can clean out files but not the folders in the temp folder by using GPO:
User Configuration->Administrative Templates->Internet Explorer->Internet Contol Panel->Advanced page.
But it does not do a through job, so to do more cleaning you need scripting:

Opps, the GPO path should be:
User Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Internet Explorer->Internet Contol Panel->Advanced page.
