Terminal Server - Delete temp internet files

I have a terminal server in the domain and would like to create a gpo that will delete the users temp internet files upon client logoff, or upon closing the browser, which would happen at logoff anyway...

I'm thinking to move the terminal server out of the "server OU", create a new OU and move the terminal server in there and simply create the gpo and link it there.

Would I need to enable a loopback policy, if so why? The "server OU" does have some policies linked to it that still may need to apply to the terminal server, so I'm not sure exactly how to approach this.
Will all clients need to have a certain version of IE?
Anything else I may need to know from those of you who have implemented this same gpo?

Windows 2008 Server.

You can just run script as login script,you don't require loopback policy.

It looks like this deletes alot more than just the temp internet files.
Also, where do I put the batch file?

I thought I would have to use a gpo as a computer configuration?
