Regarding IE. I did find several IE related .ADM templates for POLEDIT.
(Sadly, it took some searching and I don't remember where I found it, I
think I looked for MS Office ADM templates)

get flamed for MIME)

In NT Policy Editor there's a delete cached profiles when a user logs
So NT Most definitely CAN do this and handle this.

Once you find out what registry keys this tweaks you should be able to do 
this without the policy editor. 

BTW: How do I make the system NOT store the IE Cache files in the profile?
(On a domain basis or machine basis, I know how to do it per user.)


PS: If you wish help finding out what key this (If it's not the one below)
Let me know and I'll see what I can do.
