I want to set up a local proxy on my windows computer to serve as a caching proxy to speed up internet access. I have seen people use IIS for the same purpose but cannot figure out how it is done.

How would I set up IIS as a caching web proxy?

IIS is not a good solution for this, It can be done, however there are many other easier to set up free alternatives you can use. Squid is one of the most popular and is free.
