    DELTREE /Y C:\WINDOWS\FF*.TMP > NUL
    DELTREE /Y C:\WINDOWS\COOKIE*. > NUL
    DELTREE /Y C:\WINDOWS\TEMP
    DELTREE /Y C:\WINDOWS\"Temporary Internet Files"\*.*
    MD C:\WINDOWS\TEMP

    When I run the batchfile, the commands are executed one by by one:

    It really cleans up - very fast and very efficiently.

    Mr. Fallon also recommended a handy temp cleaner. It is a little program which may take care of these problems. Download it here, if you want to test it.
