Download a linux live disc. I prefer knoppix or ubuntu, http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html

Burn the ISO to a cd (Both knoppix and Ubuntu should have directions on how to do this) and boot to the disc, this will give you a working OS that is running off of a CD instead of booting to the drive. From there you can go into a file explorer and delete whatever you need to.

It may be easier just to backup your data and restore though......

windows itself is malware infected. simply deleting the temporary folder will not resolve that issue. the best thing to do is backup your data and restore as wanamingo stated.
