Visual Studio 2012 Web Site Persists

I have been working through some tutorials with Angular that involve a Web API and Web Site.  Unfortunately,  I cannot delete the web site and create it again without it name it SomeWebName (2).  I have deleted all files, cleared my browser, but still I cannot name the new Webite "SomeWebName"  without Visual Studio adding the "(2)" which is surely some persisted previous version.  Additionall I am finding that JavaScript that I change seems to not show the change on runs "as though it is also persisted".  

I need to clear my cache of JavaScript and clean out references to that old Web Site "SomeWebName" .  If there are any stable tools and/or scripts or commands to accomplish these tasks,  it would be greatly appreciated.

What menu options are you using to create a new web site?  Are you creating a Web Site or a Web Application?
Howard BashSenior Software EngineerAuthor Commented:
I am creating a Web Site.
Bob LearnedCommented:
I have never been a fan of the Web Site model, as you have very little control over the structure.  My suggestion would be to create a new Web Application with File > New Project > Visual Basic > Web or File > New Project > Visual C# > Web.
10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

I am trying to follow a tutorial on AngularJS and the instructor has setup the lessons this way.  I suppose I could try what you're suggesting.

However,  I would still like to know how to clear out the persisted junk and redo as is.  Not sure if it's caching in IE,  some temp web folder(s), some registry entries or what...
Bob LearnedCommented:
I don't have much experience with the Web Site model.  Did you say that you deleted the folder under the Projects folder configured (usually under the Documents folder)?
Howard BashSenior Software EngineerAuthor Commented:
I deleted all folders and files
Bob LearnedCommented:
I figured out what the problem is--IIS Express.  It had old sections in the Documents\IISExpress\config\ApplicationHost.config.  Locate these site sections, delete them, and you shouldn't have that problem any more.
