File Size

The file size made a significant leap and today it hasn't increased.

Uninstalled

I had to take it off. One site that I use and need could not render correctly. I considered waiting for an update. But that could be a while. So I will just wait.

I noticed the directory we were discussing was still there after the uninstall. So I left it intact and renamed it to see if it is needed.

This is very simple. You have your setting for saving the sites you have visited with IE set to high. Reset them to 30 days.

I made the mistake of setting it to 160 day and couldn't figure out why my hard drive was running all of the time and IE was freezing up.

Reduce your "Days to keep pages in history" to 30 days. All will be good.

I have not been able to define a setting or method for limiting the size of WebcacheV01.dat or for clearing it.

Does anyone know how to control the size of this variable?

Even if one doesn't use IE and have disabled it, a dllhost.exe runs in the system with ur username governing location AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache, the dllhost is related to Widows Internet - wininet ~ I'd love to get rid off the web cache dll I don't use it nor need it.
