After I do an online virus scan at Trend Micro it leaves 'stuff' in my Windows Temp folder and it stays there. I delete it and next time I do another scan online it is back. Why doesn't it 'clean ' up after itself?

Many programs don't.

Why? Nobody knows. Probably partly because of sloppy programming.

I clean out my temp folder on a daily basis.

Every time I startup there are also a myriad hidden temp files from my MS Office Shortcut Bar, every time I print there's a number of files added, etcetera

My temp folder used to get very large... Lately it's been 'clean' except for these files mentioned above. I will delete them myself.
