Windows batch command for deleting particular pattern named folders in temp

Hi All,'

I need to write a windows bat program to delete particular folders with naming pattern scoped_dir45666 (for example)(including contents)
with batch program. For that I am using below code:
Code:
@echo off
cd /D %temp%
for /d %%D in (*) do rd /s /q "%%D"
del /f /q *

i got above code from some forum, but its deleting everything causing system issues...(its screwing some os files also I guess)

I need to delete all directories names starting with scoped_dirxxxxx (scoped_dir*) can some one advise how to modify above code to delete only folders name starting with scoped_dir in %temp% folder

qstop(8B)                                                               PBS                                                              qstop(8B)

NAME
qstop - stop pbs batch job processing at a destination
SYNOPSIS
qstop destination ...
DESCRIPTION
The qstop command directs that a destination should stop processing batch jobs. If the destination is a execution queue, the server will cease scheduling jobs that reside in the queue for execution. If the destination is a routing queue, the server will cease routing jobs from that queue. In order to execute qstop, the user must have PBS Operation or Manager privilege.
OPERANDS
The qstop command accepts one or more destination operands. The operands are one of three forms: queue @server queue@server If queue is specified, the request is to stop that queue at the default server. If the @server form is given, the request is to stop all the queues at that server. If a full destination identifier, queue@server, is given, the request is to stop the named queue at the named server.
STANDARD ERROR
The qstop command will write a diagnostic message to standard error for each error occurrence.
EXIT STATUS
Upon successful processing of all the operands presented to the qstop command, the exit status will be a value of zero. If the qstop command fails to process any operand, the command exits with a value greater than zero.
SEE ALSO
pbs_server(8B), qstart(8B), and qmgr(1B) Local qstop(8B)
