You want delete all files in %temp% directory ?Am i right?

If yes.

This can do:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
$Gui = GUICreate("Form1", 354, 135)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete", 104, 80, 129, 25, $WS_GROUP)
While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $Button1
            RunWait("cmd.exe /c del /q " & @TempDir&"\*.*",@ScriptDir,@SW_ENABLE)
            MsgBox(64,"File on %temp% directory was deleted","Files on " & @TempDir & " " & "was deleted",3)


EDIT: But if the current file is on @tempdir busy by another process you cannot delete it.

this should delete all files in temp folder for every userprofile if you have appropriate rights. Also variable temp should point to %userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp (this is default.)

#include <array.au3>
#include <file.au3>
;array holding default prof and service accounts
$ardefuser [4] = ["All Users", "Default User", "LocalService", "NetworkService"]
;get variable SystemDrive
$sysdrive = EnvGet ("SystemDrive")
;get default profile folder
; if you have 64 Bit OS see helpfile RegRead to change code....
$profdir = StringReplace (RegRead ("HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList", "ProfilesDirectory"), _
"%SystemDrive%", $sysdrive)
;get folders in Document and Settings and store in array
$arfolders = _FileListToArray ($profdir, "*", 2)
;Loop over array
For $i = 1 To UBound ($arfolders) - 1
    ;if folder not found in default prof and service array then delete all in Temp Folder
    If _ArraySearch ($ardefuser, $arfolders [$i]) = - 1 Then FileDelete ($profdir & "\" & $arfolders [$i] & "\Local Settings\Temp\*.*")
