This implies that the Temp folder will ultimately use up the whole free disk space. That's nonsense. Is there a limit on the folder size or what?

Cleaning the temp folder should be a part of your weekly maintenance policy.. If you ignore this, then yes, the folder will will build up over time... Follow the suggestions, and you wont have to worry about it anymore..

The Windows Disk Cleanup Wizard will delete your temporary files, but only if they are over a week old. To create a simple batch script that will clean up your temporary directories:
Create the Batch File:
Open Notepad and type:
cd C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local rmdir /S /Q Temp
And save the file as cleantemp.bat
Now double click on the file, you created, to remove your temporary files and free up space on your computer. If this doesn’t work and gives an access error, try replacing %username% with your windows login username.
To automate this process:
1. Right click on the batch file you created and click create shortcut.
2. Place the shortcut in your startup folder in the start menu (Customize Your Start Menu.)
3. Now when you log in to Windows 7, your temporary files will be deleted.

Thank you, but I did not mean temporary internet files. I meant the clutter created by Windows whether you use IE or not.
