    every user on our network has personal space on the server. In those
    locations lies the temp internet files for everyone. We would like to clean
    those out regularily but without the hastle of going into everyone's profile
    and running the program that deletes them (in IE or Internet options). Is
    there a simple way to do this in one step? Also, if you just go into the
    folder that holds the files and delete them manually, do you risk missing
    hidden files and other links and pointers that will be left hanging?

    Thank You

  2. Are you using Roaming Profiles? By the default the temporary internet files
    are not saved to the roaming profile. If not, maybe an idea to start using
    roaming profiles?

    Else you would have to write a script which cleans the folder and schedule
    this script to run on specific days.
