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?

right a small batch script like the one attached

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
 
rem done

Also if you go to the IE properties,browsing history, settings, you will see a option disk space to use....just specify there some 5 or 10 mb only.....

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.
