ODS Best Practices - TEMP folder question

Reading through the best practices document below, there is a recommendation to scan targeted locations on a weeky/daily basis. One of the locations mentioned is the Temp folder. (page 15 "Configuring frequent active user on-demand scans"). My question is does this get just C:\Temp? or does it get C:\TMP and also the users \Temp\ folder that's in their windows profile folder?

We put this targeted scan in earlier this week as recommended and have received feedback from several users that scan64 is running almost all day, every day now. Their Users folder is huge (300+GB in some cases) so we took User Profile out of the scan to see if that helps (it will still get scanned by another weekly ODS), but reviewing the Target Threat File Path locations in our reports we see a lot of threats coming in from the users \temp\ folder. So, I'm trying to determine if we keep the Temp folder location in this daily ODS, if it will get the users \temp\ folder, or just C:\Temp
