I need a tool to clean and shred temp files from any browser session. I have tried eraser but is there a better tool out there that requires less manual job scheduling?

CCleaner. It allows you to choose how many times to overwrite the files it deletes.

Another vote for CCleaner. You can use the built in options to have it run when you log in, etc, and I am also pretty sure you can run it from the command line (for the purposes of scheduling a task). Not sure on the last one however. –  EvilChookie Jul 19 '09 at 1:27
    
Dan's right. Go to Options > Settings, and you should have options for Normal File Deletion, and Secure File Deletion, which includes options for DOD (3 passes), Gutmann (35 passes), and NSA (7 passes). –  Isxek Jul 19 '09 at 1:59

You could download SDelete and run a Scheduled Tasks at a regular interval to delete the temp browser files.
