MORE INFORMATION
Internet Explorer must download a Web page, and any necessary files suchas graphics, sound, or .avi files, to the Cache folder before the pagecan be displayed. Even though the cache is set to zero percent, InternetExplorer requires a persistent cache for the current session. Thepersistent cache requires 4 MB or 1 percent of the logical drive size,whichever is greater.

Shortcuts to sites visited in the current session are stored in theHistory folder. When you quit Internet Explorer, all shortcuts in theHistory folder are removed.
