IE always need refresh to see new changes

what is the setting that makes IE to remember the details of the last session, that even if the content of a website is changed, it is caching it and displaying old data only.

thanks

The previous 'sessions' are remembered through cookies set in IE.
To change the default cookie behavior, go into the privacy settings:

Tools-->Settings-->Privacy-->Advanced-->
Check the box 'Override automatic cookie handling
Block first party cookies, block 3rd party cookies.

This will ensure that no sessions are remembered.

Also - to clear out existing session memory (existing cookies), use the Temporary Internet Files --> Settings as mentioned by the user above

Thanks for your help on the Temporary Internet Files & browser history.

I am using IE 7; I do not see the Tools-->Settings option. Could you guide me where else it could be?
