C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\AppData\Local\Temp

When running CCleaner as that same YOUR_USER_NAME, I find that CCleaner v3.22.1800 (64-bit) does indeed clean out that directory. (Actually, it won't touch any files less than 24 hours old in either the above %temp% directory or in C:\Windows\temp.)

However, if one has multiple users on the box, I don't know if it would handle the other users' %temp% directories. (If it doesn't, one could add the full paths to CCleaner in Options -> Include and "Add" each respective path (and set to include files and subfolders), assuming the logon running CCleaner has rights to those folders and files.)
