I downloaded this program on sumari's suggestion & it seems to work very well. It downloads as a zip file, unzip & install it, very easy & there is a menu panel that gets displayed after installing & you can set what you wish it to do. I selected to run at every start up. There is not much point in checking for updates as the program is from 2012, so no updates. Also only use the Major Geeks site to download it.

The program shows up in Programs & Features as UnClean.

Thanks. I might give it a try. I'd like to get to the "root" of what's causing these .cab files to be generated and saved, then make it stop.
