After you set the Microsoft Internet Explorer cache to zero percent, pagesare still cached. When you set the History setting to 0, sites are stillcached in the History folder.
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.
