OK, if you save the bat file on a mapped drive, then add this code into your logon vbs

Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run chr(34) & "put your network path here" & Chr(34), 0
Set WshShell = Nothing

it will only delete files that are not in use but seems to get most out of the folder.

change the "put your network path here" with the relevant network path.  

you can test this by putting just this code into a vbs file on your computer and put the bat file out on the network and look at your temp folder so you get the idea of how much stuff is in it.  Then run the vbs file.  Then recheck your temp folder and see that most items are removed.

as always a test machine is a good idea for testing this.

Creating the Batch File to Clean Temporary Files
1.Open Notepad and type the following:

cd C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local
rmdir /S /Q Temp

2.Save the file as cleantemp.bat

3.Now double click on the file to remove your temporary files and free up space on your computer
If this doesn’t work and gives an access error, try replacing %username% with you windows login username.

Automating the Process of Deleting Temporary Files
To automate this process, so you do not need to remember to run it, do the following:

1.Right click on the batch file and select create shortcut
2.Place the shortcut in your startup folder in the start menu
Now when you log in to Windows 7, your temporary files will be deleted.

Create the script and place it on a commonly accessible network share. maybe you can set it to run with  group policy and select Computer Configuration --> Windows Settings --> Scripts --> Log-Off or Shutdown. Add a reference to the script
