Depending on the speed of your system and rotational speed of your hard drive, you could be in for a long wait.

But that's what you're after, right?

You can't permanently delete Temporary files

by Jacky Howe In reply to How to eliminate temp fil ...

Here are two tools that will delete them for you by manually running them.

Download and install CCleaner to tidy up your Registry. Backup the Registry as you go along, rescan again and again saving as you go until there are no errors left.

Cleaner: Windows

Download and install CCleaner

When you first open Ccleaner you will have an option to Analyze or Run Cleaner, after checking the left Pane and making your choices. Delete all Temp Files. If you scroll down you will see a greyed out box that has Advanced next to it. Left click on it and keep pressing OK to all of the responses. I normally Untick Windows Log Files and Memory Dumps as they may come in handy.

You don't have to install all of the add ons or shortcuts just the one to the Desktop.

Download ATF Cleaner to your Desktop to remove Temp Files.

You cannot permently delete them and always - have a batch file to do this job or a small script with admin permissions. shellscript would help i hope.
