WinDirStat is a disk usage statistics viewer and cleanup tool for various versions of Microsoft Windows. Use WinDirStat program to find out which files taking up more space. How come you think its temp files and where does this temporary files store at does the program you use to clean these temporary files display error message if it does can you write down for us to view the error message.
Copy and paste below batch script codes to Notepad and save it as TempCleaner.bat  make sure to save the file with only bat extension. Run the TempCleaner.bat as a administrator to clean temporary files store within Temp folder.
