There are several hard or clumsy ways to do what you want. But the easy way
is simply to start IE and then click Tools | Internet Options. On the first
(General) tab is the Browsing history section with Delete and Settings
While you have Internet Options open, you might want to click the Advanced
tab, then scroll way down to the Security heading and check the box to
"Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed". With
broadband, especially, we can re-download fresh contents from the 'Net as
quickly as we can retrieve possibly-stale contents from our cache, anyhow.
This Internet Options page has not changed much from IE6. But IE7 hides the
Menu Bar by default. If you don't see the Tools button, press Alt to turn
on the Menu Bar temporarily. Right-click on the Address Bar for the option
to turn it on permanently.
I don't use either AOL or Mozilla, so I don't know how they may affect this.
