Vista thumbnail cache cleaning?

Vista's thumbnail cache is located under:

%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer

 

Even if you take ownership of the files you still cant delete them. The diskcleanup tool has an option in there to delete the thumb cache files (seems to work as I just tested it).

So find a way like index.dat files... to delete the cache upon reboot if that's needed. Not addressing the issue is a terrible privacy oversight.
