Clear cached WPAD script

Posted by bartvdw on 1313/0303/2011

When you use a WPAD script, it’s begin cached. When you want to perform testing, this is not very interesting. Default this is 50 minutes, IE uses 1 hour.

To have a clean starting point, use following steps:

  1. Clear the Internet Explorer cache completely: ActiveX Controls, Cookies, History, etc..
  2. Close all instances of Internet Explorer.
  3. Delete all WPAD script instances. Open a command window as administrator and type the following command:
    del \wpad*.dat /s
  4. Clear the DNS and Netbios name caches. Open a command window as administrator and type the following commands:
    ipconfig /flushdns
    nbtstat -R

Now you have a clean starting point for your tests.
