Windows 7: cannot permanently delete temporary files?

cannot permanently delete temporary files?

I don't send files to Recycle bin, but set to permanently delete files.
On different days, I've Run as Admin- Both CCleaner, Win Disk Cleanup (KIS AV disabled until reboot).

It says about 1gig of temporary files are deleted, if I scan again that day after a couple of reboots they are gone.

But the next day after a cold startup, they are mostly back?


I've Run as Admin- sfc /scannow (3 passes), but says no errors found.

I can't read the screenshots.

I just thought it strange to see it in the window like that.

He must have some setting wrong or something, CCleaner has worked perfectly for me for like 9 years or so.

The temp files in your user folder are a normal artifact of Windows. Temp file cleanup should be part of your weekly housekeeping chores.

The OP has temp files return to the tune of 1GB though. I can't figure that one out.
