I simhadrisai and welcome to!

So, just to make sure I understand you correctly: you want to create a task that will delete two folders (called structure and temp) once every hour regardless of whether the user is using erp or not. Correct?

If I understood you correctly then what you will need is the following:
  • The command
    Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
    1. DELTREE <directory>
    which will delete a directory with all of its contents
  • Task scheduling, which is explained here for Windows XP (and should be very similar under Windows 7).
What you would do is create a batch script for deleting the directories and then create a task to run that batch script every hour.
