This behavior is by design.

MORE INFORMATION

The History and Temporary Internet Files folders can be emptied by the user manually; therefore, the contents of these folders are not a reliable way of tracking Web sites accessed by Internet Explorer. Proxy servers or standalone tracking software provide a more reliable way of tracking a user's access to Web sites.
