Windows 7: Automatic cleanup onboard tools

Automatic cleanup onboard tools


Once in a while I encounter the situation that I have to maintaince a Windows 7 system with low system space.
After cleaning the temp folders folders (I often use CCleaner) often more than 20% is free again.

But my question is if there is a tooling that cleans all temp files on windows periodical on board which can be enabled?

I really don't understand why microsoft is not setting up automated service cleaning the temp files (files not changed since a week).
