INetCache Folder Under System32 Increases

\System32\Config\SystemProfile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\ folder includes Temporary Internet files. The situation could have raised due to multiple browser instances initated at a time as the mentioned folder stores all IE cache and temporary internet files. 

First Method: In Internet Options click the Advanced tab, and scroll down the settings. In the Security category check the box for Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed.

If the previous method didn’t work, you can execute a batch script to delete all files periodically. To do this, open a PowerShell console with Run as Administrator mode. And then execute the following script.

Remove-item "$env:systemroot\System32\Config\SystemProfile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\*.*" -Recurse -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

Remove-item "$env:systemroot\SysWOW64\Config\SystemProfile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\*.*" -Recurse -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
