Posted by jpluimers on 2021/03/02

If you forgot what Microsoft has added, look for a file named like this:

C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.Getstarted_7.3.20251.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\WhatsNew.Store.exe

Disregard any warnings you find through the above link: it is a legit file installed during Windows 10 update.

Deleting the WebCache database – The IE browser cache | Apttech’s Blog

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/02/15

[WayBack] Deleting the WebCache database – The IE browser cache | Apttech’s Blog quotes from WayBack: C drive space is using up on terminal server after upgrading to IE10 or IE11 – AsiaTech: Microsoft Azure & Development:

With the new cache implementation, the cache files are saved in %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache\ folder. And, the cache files will be created when a new user logs on.

Actually, the database is a file named WebCacheV01.dat in the cache folder, and its initial size could be around 20-32MB. The size of this file will keep increasing along with you browse more and more websites.

save the below contents into ClearIECache.cmd file and try to fun this file.

echo OFF
net stop COMSysApp
taskkill /F /IM dllhost.exe
taskkill /F /IM taskhost.exe
taskkill /F /IM taskhostex.exe
del /Q %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache\*.*
net start COMSysApp
echo ON

Furthermore, you’d better deploy the batch file to a logoff script of your local GPO, here are the steps.

  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Indexes tab.
  • Click Force Rebuild.

If that fails, you can always remove/add the volumes:
