Hallo n/p, are you meaning your temp folder or your page file that you have moved to your flash drive?

The only way i know to clear a temp folder properly is to manually delete its contents which you can access from the Run command and type; %temp%
But i dont know if this command would work if your temp folder is on your flash drive, but you could just open it from your Computer explorer window.

If it is your page file that is on your flash drive & you want it to clear itself on shutdown, then this is the tutorial for you;

Things might have changed but i tried this once with XP & it made for a long shutdown

There is probably an easier way, and I will think about it, but first write a batch file to delete the contents of that drive letter. Then use the Group Policy Editor to write a log off script to run that batch file. Or you could add an event, there must be a shutdown event, to run your batch file again.

If you need more direct help, just ask.
