Why not use %USERPROFILE% instead of "%SystemRoot% for state information?
There may be also %TMP% or %TEMP% defined. UNIX users always make a
difference between program directories (which may be shared read-only) and
data directories which should be writable and private).

AFAIK: if the temporary file is removed, so are your ACLs.
