If you look at that folder's contents offline (without Windows running) you'll see it only contains one file (that index.dat file) and a bunch of randomly named folders. I think 4 of those folders contain the temporary files you're deleting. The rest of those folders seem to be "decommissioned" folders containing even older temporary files.

Sebastian42, I don't use a computer with Windows 7. I have a couple of Windows 7 virtual machines that I can play with and learn from and a few Windows 7 computers that I support. I've used a script to clear IE's data for many years, but I don't know enough about Windows 7 to know what needs to be changed in my script tn order to accomplish what you need.
The script calls a line like this: RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 4351
and then the script handles things that the "ClearMyTracksByProcess" call does not clear.
If you want to run that line inside a batch file, you may see a window popup showing you the progress of the cleanup - it depends on how many files there are to be cleaned and the speed of your computer - you might not see that window.
There are lots of web pages detailing the flags that can be used with this command.
The flag would be the 4351 part of:
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 4351
If you do not want to see the progress window, try:
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 23035
None of this clears all of the info inside DOMStore and I don't know if that DOM info is what might be causing you problems inside WLM or not. Clearing the IE data via the regular user interface can clear the DOM info. My attempts to ferret out more knowledge about the flags used with ClearMyTracksByProcess via Process Monitor has not yielded the magic flag for clearing that DOM data yet.
