Other forums seem to indicate that disabling microsoft security essentials stop the tmp files from being made.
Could you check if this indeed is the case ?
Otherwise, you could investigate if an add-in causes the tmp files to be made by disabling all add-ins.

i expect that the tmp files will be owned by the persons which were saving the excel file. You could either have an administrator delete the files or try to take ownership of the documents and delete them yourself.

With the permissions you have set this can only be achieved doing the following:

You could do this from the backend using VBScript or Batch File, and maybe setup a scheduled task on your server to execute the script every hour or so:

VBScript Example: DeleteTMPfiles.vbs
Dim fso

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

fso.DeleteFile "D:\path\to\folder\*.tmp", True


Batch File Example: DeleteTMPfiles.bat
del /s D:\topleveldir\*.tmp


Hope this helps!!
