xSixSigmaMBB,

Using Windows 7, there is another hidden temp folder [besides C:\Windows\Temp] within your User Account.

Indeed, and there are other temp folders specific to various programs. Personally, I have a batch file (remember DOS?) that erases files older than a couple months from various temp folders at each bootup. And removes any empty folders within the temp folders.
