Default How to Flush out Cache on my local computer

Hello General Question:

I sometimes go to websites and they install Cookies on my machine.

However I noticed sometime even after I delete the Cookies and all offline content, the same cookies keep getting created. Sometimes my default home page gets changed automatically. And even after I delete all cookies, and change the home page back to the one I assign somehow the default homepage gets changed again.

I would imagine this is because cache contains the cookie-ish items and when my computer restarts or when I click internet explorer some of these cookies get recreated and my home page gets re-assigned another URL.

How do I solve this?

I don't want to change the setting of Internet options to Custom Level.

I would imagine I would have to do this in DOS.

All suggestions are welcome
This is just my best guess.

1. cookies are created each time you visit a page
2. You likely have ad-ware or other spyware things on your system. Get "Spybot S&D" and "Ad Aware" and run both of them.
