Resolution / Answer

Normally Internet Explorer Mobile 6 (IEM6) cached data is cleared using the IEM6 menu "Tools">"Options">"Browsing History".

The "Browsing History" dialog shows the items "Temporary Files", "Cookies" and "History" with there memory usage.
To clear one of these cached items click the item and then on (Clear).



To clear these items form outside the IEM6 graphical user interface delete the files and directories located at "\windows\Profiles":

  1. \Windows\Profiles\guest\Temporary Internet Files\*.*
  2. \Windows\Profiles\guest\Cookies\*.*
  3. \Windows\profiles\guest\History\History.IE5
