To clear the cache on your Internet Explorer browser, follow the steps below.

(These instructions are made using Internet Explorer 9, but the principal should be the same for all versions of Internet Explorer.)

Step 1: Get Started

Open Internet Explorer on your Windows computer.

Once your browser is open, press Ctrl+Shift+Delete to open the Delete Browsing History window. 

Alternatively, you can open this manually by clicking the gear at the top right to open the settings menu and then select Internet Options.

You now should be in the General Tab.

Navigate to Browsing History and click on the Delete button.

Step 2: Clearing Cache

Ensure that the Temporary Internet files and Cookies boxes are checked.

Note: This is necessary to completely clear your browser cache. Uncheck everything else to avoid deleting data unintentionally.

Click the Delete button to proceed.

Step 3: Cache Cleared

Congratulations! You've now successfully cleared all your Internet Explorer's cookies & cache data from your computer!

Note: If you do not see any difference, kindly restart your browser.
