    I ditched CCleaner as it always breaks my icons and they lose the icon image (happens on Windows 8 and 7) so I installed the latest version of Wise Disk Cleaner and selected to clear out the Windows Temp/Junk Files and temporary downloaded installation programs.

    The temp downloaded folders (located in C:\Windows\Temp and C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download )were deleted but the temp files under my windows user account which are located in: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Temp were NOT deleted. I tried searching in the settings for an option to delete temp files even if they are recent but couldn't find it. Here is a link to how my temp folder looks after cleaning it with Wise Disk Cleaner >>> http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/628/capturezw.png

    Please help

    Do you have secure delete enabled in the general options ?
    Have you tick all cleaner options in the main interface?

    If your OS is on a SSD, you don't need to secure delete, i've experienced the same issue and untick the secure delete and all temp files gone.

    Rules.

    PS : check also if you don't have the temp directory in the exclude option
