How to clear your Internet Explorer (version 7) cache from the command line

Posted by kiquenet en 20 julio 2010

Normally, you have to open IE and choose Tools | Delete Browsing History | Delete All…

Another way would be to open the command line and type the following commands:

  • RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 255 (Deletes ALL History)
  • RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 1 (Deletes History Only)
  • RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 2 (Deletes Cookies Only)
  • RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 8 (Deletes Temporary Internet Files Only)
  • RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 16 (Deletes Form Data Only)
  • RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 32 (Deletes Password History Only)

    Delete All – “Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons”
    RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 4351

These commands should work in Internet Explorer 7 on XP or on Windows Vista.
