IE on close, clear cache
« on: March 29, 2005, 03:10:22 AM »

  Hi all

XPSP2 IE6  Internet Exporer has an advanced option to   empty Temporary Internet Files when Browser Closes.     

Disabled or Won't clear cache on close  when Avast 4.6 Home is running.

Of course Microsoft says to check with Avast for the work around, which I hope you'll tell me in simple terms ?

thanks,    Mike

Hi, mikep. Welcome  8)

Only files on this folder C:\WINDOWS\Temp\_avast4_ are related to avast and can't be deleted by that command.
But, why not the others?!
avast can't block or avoid files deletion...
Did you run and avast scanning? Are you clean of viruses?

Yes, I;ve scanned for virus & spyware too.

... there's no problem manually clearing cache with clearmgr or internet options/clear cache or just manual selecting and deleting from the drive,,      but the cache will not auto clear on browser window closing when the virus program is installed     even though that IE option is selected.   I can delete it from reg/run and reboot & instantly clear cache on close browser option works.

I'm now pretty much forced to not run a resident full time virus program unless I can figure out a work around - and I've devoted so much time now tinkering.   I decided to ask here before trying another maker of virus ware.

thanks

mikep, this is not a solution, but a work-around: Try IE Privacy Keeper (http://www.unhsolutions.net/IEPK/index.shtml). Excellent software, freeware, that can automatically clean everything (see the last photo).

CCleaner is another excellent program that can be used for that purpose.

Yes, but you have to be careful it doesn't delete the _avast4_ folder in 'C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Temp\_avast4_' as has happened with someone and he couldn't use web shield without the folder. Best to run it at the end of the day prior to shut-down.

This is not possible anymore - while webshield is running, so you should not worry.

I've got IE6 set to auto-clear the cache when closing IE, plus I clear temp. internet files (via Internet Options) after closing which typically finds even more to delete.  Plus after I come offline (I'm on dialup) I'll use Disk Cleanup which often finds still more.

So really, cleanup is a 3-stage process.

Do you mean that whilst ashWebSv.exe is running as a service or is actually connected to the internet? I ask this because earlier today prior to my last post I used a cleaner program and deleted the folder _avast4_ I referred to, ashWebSv was running as a service, but I don't remember if I was actually on-line at the time.

I am however able to continue browsing with web shield enabled even without _avast4_.

David, I can't delete the folder if WebShield service is running (on-line or off-line). Using XP SP2...  ???

No problems in deleting _avast4_ whilst on-line and web shield running.
