Delete one file from temporary internet files using group policy

Hi

I need to delete one file from the temporary internet files folder using group policy. Seems easy enough, however the file is never deleted and I get this error in app logs: The system cannot find the path specified.

If I enter the file path in to Windows Explorer, it successfully finds the file:

%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\footerimage1

If I use this exact same path in the group policy (user, pref, windows, files), it can't find the file.

Windows 7 clients.

Any ideas please?

Thanks,
James

I didn't have any joy trying to delete a single file, so I just went for clearing the entire temp files when closing IE.
