I am having a problem clearing the cache for IE (11) when it comes to pictures. I have a site I need to test in regards to image loading times, but no matter what I do, it seems the images stay cached somewhere.

Sure I do Ctrl+Shift+Delete and clear the cache with these settings

enter image description here

But it seems to have no effect on images, and they seem to be "remembered" by the browser.

How can I ensure that image data is deleted in IE (11)?

To clarify, I need to load the page as if it were the very first time this site has ever been seen by the browser.

  • Have you tried restarting the browser after clearing the cache? – Synetech Jan 10 '14 at 16:10
  • @Synetech Yeah, several times. – VoidKing Jan 10 '14 at 16:11
  • @Synetech The thing is, I have a bug in my site that image load times are responsible for, but it only shows the very first time the site is visited. I try to load the page with Ctrl+F5, clear cache, then restart browser, but it continues to remember the images, preventing me from recreating the issue more than once on any given machine. – VoidKing Jan 10 '14 at 16:13
  • Maybe your ISP is caching them somewhere between your site and your computer? – David Jan 10 '14 at 17:47
  • I also wonder how this could be more easily done via the commandline? – MDT Guy Jan 10 '14 at 17:58

Try using CCLEANER it will clean your IE history/cache with no problems including images. It is configurable to not clear passwords and other cookies you may want to keep.
