Who creates empty folders msi.tmp?

Who creates temporary folders (empty, access only for the administrator) msiXXX.tmp (after the msi letters and numbers) in the root of drive C and how to stop it?
In one place I answered that incorrectly configured environment variable TEMP (or TMP).
Another is a virus scanner run from Microsoft. There was also advice to install a software that will automatically clean up these empty folders.
Still the answer was to adjust the invisibility of these folders. Only what they need in the store? If it creates any program, you need a removal mechanism.

Msi creates a folder component of the operating system - Microsoft Installer - if you install the software, or OS upgrades. In these folders there is no problem.
How is nothing wrong when their guide was more than they scored the entire tree on the left. The question remains why the installer does not write to Windows\Temp and why not clean them? - sunny commented on July 8th 19 at 11:21
I often see these folders, I suspect that this operating system works and the answers to these questions need to look on the support site of Microsoft. Well, if the manual deletion of these folders is not an option. - everardo_West commented on July 8th 19 at 11:24
: and you and I gave answers including from the MS website. Manual removal was terrible: a window POPs up saying you need administrator permission (even though I am the administrator). Only after that, allowed the removal. Mark all folders at once is impossible. Began to change owners. There is generally such a jungle (a few dozen users and groups, although initially showing only two users: me (admin) and guest.) - sunny commented on July 8th 19 at 11:27
Sorry I wasn't able to help you. Try to disable UAC in user settings before deleting folders. This will reduce the security of the system and will allow you to delete folders without confirmation of administrative rights. I tried to use CCleaner? Tried to do a regular disk cleanup? (Drive - Properties - disk Cleanup) - everardo_West commented on July 8th 19 at 11:30
Yes, it's not folders, but somehow don't make sense: the computer knows that I have admin rights, but for some reason it says that I have no rights. I read the batch file that removes everything, but it turned out that it for Linux. The upshot was that stupidly deleted that one (previously removed the checkbox to confirm the deletion; then returned). From a huge list of users at first, began to rush between <I> (Administrator) and the administrator Group. Because Windows is very long altered law, chose another option of the owner: all (all privileges). - sunny commented on July 8th 19 at 11:33
About protecting from malware. To perform actions that must be performed by the administrator, you need to perform a physical confirmation (with a keyboard button or mouse), that would eliminate the effect of malicious code. In case, if your account was not an administrator, you would not receive a warning and a requirement to enter the username and password of the administrator. - everardo_West commented on July 8th 19 at 11:36
