So I run a test and it says, "The maximum size of your Internet Explorer browser cache is 7452 megabytes. This is a larger value than we recommend."

So I follow these steps.

Start Internet Explorer
Select Tools | Internet Options | General
Under Temporary Internet Files click the Settings button.
In the box for the amount of disk space to use, enter a value between 10 and 100 megabytes.
Click OK to accept the changes.

But when I scan again it says my cache is still 7452 MB. i'm using IE 7

What kind of test?

Did you delete the files that are in the cache? In IE, go to Tools, and you’ll see ‘Delete Browsing History. In there, click, 'Delete Files'.

I ran pcpitstop again.

Set the number in the 10-20 MB area. PCPitStop may again say this is now too small, but it really does not have to be any larger than this.

7,452 GBs is just a "few" GBs too big!

It still says "The maximum size of your Internet Explorer browser cache is 7452 megabytes. This is a larger value than we recommend."

When I set it at like 20 MB

I can see that I changed the size to whatever I changed it to when I check. Is there any other way to change the cache size?

The message above "seems" to be saying the maximum size that it "could" be is 7.452 (default 15%, I think, of the drive) BUT this is a lot larger than recommended.

IE: You have changed it. Run another PCPitstop test.

Oh, since I have IE7 that is why pcpitstop gives me incorrect results.
