objRegistry.EnumKey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, strKeyPath, arrSubkeys
For Each objSubkey In arrSubkeys
strValueName = "ProfileImagePath"
strSubPath = strKeyPath & "\" & objSubkey
objRegistry.GetExpandedStringValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,strSubPath,strValueName,strValue
LogAction "Deleting Temporary Internet files for " & strValue & "\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\*.*"

You can call any DOS "environment" variable using the following method within VBS without having to interrogate AD

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
userProfilePath = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%UserProfile%")

just swap the "%UserProfile%" in the above line to which ever DOS environment variable it is you need.
