Is there anything I can add to this to tell the batch to continue even if there is an error, i.e., the path is not found??  I don't mind an echo statement as long as the batch does not stop moving.  Also, I am not sure if using >NUL after these lines do anything.  If that is the case I will remove.  

@echo off
del /s /q "%programfiles%\bquest\*.tmp" >NUL
del /s /q "%programfiles(x86)%\bquest\*.tmp" >NUL
cls
exit

i run the script and even if there's an error in the first line it continues to the second line and doesn't exit.
if u remove the cls and exit lines of code (the bottom 2 lines) and run the script in a command window, you'll see that both deletion lines are run regardless any error triggered.
