Hello John,

From IE browser's main menu, select Tools | Internet Options. On the General Tab, look at section ( at middle) title Temporary Internet Files. Select settings. On the next window, look at the top section --- Check for newer versions of stored pages.
Select (click) "Every visit to the page".

On the Advanced TAB, scroll down to the section called Security. Select (tick) "Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed". Press Apply & OK.
