Can the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer cache be disabled?

I have clients at a business who use Windows Picture and Fax Viewer to open attachments frequently. Every time they open one it brings up a list of all the ones they have previously opened. After a while this list builds up and slows down the program. I know how to clear these images but is there any way to prevent it from storing them so I don't have to keep clearing them out?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I know how to deleted these old pictures but I'm trying to prevent them from accumulating. Adjustring the size limit to 5 or 10Mb would still allow for a lot of pictures and pdf files.

set a scheduled task on the machine(s) to run at noon each day?
@echo off
REM script to clear the accumulated files once a day
c:
cd "\documents and settings\username\application data\temporary internet files"
del *.* /s/q
