Windows 7: System Log Files (Web Cache)

System Log Files (Web Cache)

I recently got a refurb system running Win 7 Pro. I use CCleaner to get rid of unwanted files.
There is one file that shows up every time I go on the internet. It's a system file called "Web Cache".
I do not use Internet Explorer. Matter of fact I turned it off usder "Win Programs"
This file appears to log almost every click I make with the mouse. I want to turn it off and stop it from
logging. I would like some suggestions, please.

You can't stop it logging.

IE10 uses WebcacheV01.dat vs index.dat files. How to clear/delete? - Page 5 - Windows 7 Help Forums

Based on information here:

Forensic analysis of the ESE database in Internet Explorer 10 | Forensic Focus - Articles

I have regularly deleted the following list of files on boot but it is not recommended to do so.

That webcachev01 file pulls in data from many sources and simply deleting the file doesn't prevent it from getting rebuilt.

Also there is absolutely no point in running PrivaZer unless you can get to grips with all of the options and settings.

Appreciate the information. The webcache you reference is exactly what I wanted to stop logging.
So, I'll just keep deleting it every time I come off the net.
