Make the IE Browser Control Reaload Pages

My app uses the IE Browser Control to load a Web Page at the start. I want to be sure that the page is loaded each time the app is run and not the cached version of the page on the user's PC.
What can I set or do to insure this?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

please explain how to apply or use it.
I have no example. Where do I place it and how is it worded.
Thanks.

     Is this what you are looking for?

On Internet Explorer menu bar go to Tools > Internet Options > General Tab > Temporary Internet Files > Settings button > Check For newer versions of stored pages: >  click on the option button that says "Every visit to the page".

When you initially navigate to a url (on start up) you can set the flag to 'not read from cache'. If you want to reload the page after navigation, you can use the naviage2 method (emoreau's suggestion). You can then specify a complete refresh.

Const navNoReadFromCache = 4
Const refresh_completely = 3

Private Sub Form_Load()
WebBrowser1.Navigate "www.experts-exchange.com", navNoReadFromCache
End Sub

Private Sub cmdRefresh_Click()
WebBrowser1.Refresh2 refresh_completely
End Sub
