The temp & temporary internet files in user profiles considerably slows down
the scanning process going through junk temp files, especially if there are
over 10 users on the system. I know sometimes scumware hides in there, but we
would like to just delete them using a script.

As Admin, is there any way to delete all local user's temp & temporary
internet files from thier profiles using a script ?

That is easy enough, and i have considered disk cleanup...but I was under the
impression that this will only clean up that particular user account and not
the other user's temp/TIF files. Is this correct? Even MS anti spyware has a
tracks eraser that can do the job but it only does deletes temp/TIF of the
user logged in and not everyones...I am trying to get all local users in one
swoop...
