SYSTEM security group keeps getting removed from %tmp% folder

A Windows 10 64-bit domain joined computer has an issue where the SYSTEM security group keeps getting removed from the %tmp% folder. This temp folder is located within the default location of C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Temp.

This creates issues such as programs not being able to upgrade and the user not being able to print.

This computer currently has all latest Windows 10 updates installed and according to Malwarebytes it is completely clean and doesn't have any malware or harmful software installed. the SFC and DISM commands have also been run and the event viewer logs don't display any serious issues or warnings.

While this issue can be fixed by adding the SYSTEM security group back within the  Security tab (with the full control permissions) it is a hassle to keep doing this.

What can be done to prevent this issue from occurring?
