For the currently logged in profile, or all profiles on the machine?

Just the cache for the current user.

I'm not sure if this is what you want, but if you want to delete the files in the cookies folder of the current user, you can find where the cookies folder is located by using:

RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders","Cookies")oÝ÷ Ù.q©Ý¡«")Z®Øb"¶axíz¹Þ¶¬¶òjëh×6RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders","History")

Thanks for the info. Good stuff to have in my bag of tricks !

What I'm looking for is a way to clear the Temporary

Internet files under Tools->Internet Options>Delete All Offline Content->

check the Offline files box, then click OK.

If you were looking for the code, the above will work but if you are looking for a program that does it for you:
