Clearing IE 10 cache

I'm having some difficulty clearing the IE10 cache on my Windows 7 platform.    If I use Internet Options/Delete history, cookies & website data, and tick "preserve favorites website data", then I still get a cached version of some websites, including my own.  If I untick that option, I will need to re-enter a user ID and passwords for all the sites which require them.  I'm not having the same issue with Chrome,  Firefox or Safari.  Is there an easier way to clear the IE10 cache?  Clearing the DNS cache from a command prompt doesn't help.

If you need to clear it completely, then Reset IE. Tools, Internet Options. Advanced and Reset. This clears everything including forms and passwords.

Once done, regular Disk Cleanup (System Tools) will keep IE in order.

Thank you.  Resetting IE (as you specified) and restarting the computer still did not prevent IE10 from loading a cached version of my web page, on the first try!  But deleting files, after the reset and restart, did finally clear that cache.  Is there a way to clear the cache effectively, without removing all forms and passwords?

Now that the cache has cleared, go to IE10 delete options and check off what you would like cleared. See below:

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

You might also wish to go to Control Panel, Credential Manager and delete specific userid's related to the troubled websites. That may help.
