    Disable WebCacheV01.dat


    I use local, the directory will be C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache.
    I would like to be able to stop this caching.

    Things I have tried. I have been successful at changing the security properties and disabled the inherence. Removed all users that were allowed to access webcache.dat.
    Deleted the log files in webcache folder
    Viewed the log caches and followed the links. Here is one of those links in the cache logs. http://img-s-msn-com.akamaized.net/t...pg&x=436&y=291

    After completing the above, I went back to the web doing this post. The system changed webcache to webcache.old folder and started a new webcache folder.

    How can I stop webcache?.

    Ok how can I stop MS from using my computer to cache to all the pages. Is this Microsoft way to use our bandwidth to share data between users.

    I have solved this problem, Thanks to sujay for his great tutorial
    To disable webcache we need to
    CacheTask“.
    open Task Scheduler from Administrative Tools,
    navigate to Microsoft > Windows > Wininet.
    Stop and disable the task.

    Second step is to delete the dcom
    REGEDIT search for this GUID:{3EB3C877-1F16-487C-9050-104DBCD66683}
    Delete this GUID
    You will have to change the ownership to your user to be able to delete this key.

    I have noticed a huge change in web browsing behavior. Since stopping and denying access and deleting webcache, I traced my line using wireshark and have discovered something. My computer was being used as a cache server for Pictures to all sorts of pages. I do not get those "I" candy pictures in my web browser now.
    I also noticed in wireshark how I was able to find the true IP of the servers hosting these Images and was able to block the nameserver in my host file.
    I was not able to find the IP of these servers because I was being the host, it was my IP hosting data to the browser. I now understand why I had so many packets being sent from my computer ip to router.
    On a personal side, I feel lot more secure now. WHY WOULD MS ENABLE THIS BY DEFAULT?

    Here is the list of servers. I included this into my hostfile.
    0.0.0.0 a248.e.akamai.net
    0.0.0.0 zb.akamaitech.net
    0.0.0.0 zm-1.akamaitech.net
    0.0.0.0 zc.akamaitech.net

    0.0.0.0 ns2-193.akamaitech.net
    0.0.0.0 ze.akamaitech.net
    0.0.0.0 zf.akamaitech.net
    0.0.0.0 zi.akamaitech.net
    0.0.0.0 za.akamaitech.net
    0.0.0.0 ns4-193.akamaitech.net
    0.0.0.0 zd.akamaitech.net
    0.0.0.0 ns3-193.akamaitech.net
    There are more but this is suitable now.

    Delete the WebcacheV01.dat file


    There is an app called WebCacheKiller.exe which will now repeatedly kill this file. This kills and shows the webcachev01.dat file.

    Omg thank you so much for this post. I have been dealing with the same issue since windows 8 my pictures are constantly being uploaded to akamaitechnologies, msnbot, searchui, nvidiabackend (video of them uploading over 3Gbs in one session until I managed to disable it) edge, google, amazonaws and so many other places. Unfortunately I am a designer having created many of today's designs but never get the chance to upload my own work because of "data collection." I have recorded these companies uploading GBs at a time, and begged everyone in the security field for help and they just treat me like I'm crazy... So your post here is VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!

    Hi all, especially Sujay I hope.

    I have just updated Windows 10 to the Aniversary version.
    I have followed all the steps set out by Sujay to eliminate Windows – Continuous Disk Write + WebCacheV01.dat + V01.log – Issue

    I have disabled “CacheTask“. To find this, open Task Scheduler from Administrative Tools, navigate to Microsoft > Windows > Wininet.
    And I have eliminated the GUID
    {3EB3C877-1F16-487C-9050-104DBCD66683}

    But I still have WebCacheV01.dat in this folder: C:\Users\XXXXXXX\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache

    And this file is 26MB and always come up when I run CCleaner.
    Any help would be much appreciated to totally eliminate this.

    Oh, one other thing, if I open REGEDIT and search for the GUID
    {3EB3C877-1F16-487C-9050-104DBCD66683}
    I only find it in:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\WOW6432Node\CLSID\{0358b920-0ac7-461f-98f4-58e32cd89148}
    Predetermined Type REG_SZ Data Wininit Cache Task Object
    AppID Type REG_SZ {3EB3C877-1F16-487C-9050-104DBCD66683}


    I would be gratefull for any help possible

    have tried everything out there and have yet to stop the webcache, disabling the task only seems to make the folder disappear the files still turn up when I run CCleaner. I have been opening these files and have numerous websites I have never heard of, many end in .eu or. ir and .ru - there are numerous things like bing and xboxgold.com each listed above one of my personal files.

    I did a clean install of windows 10 on October 30 updated then disconnected from the internet and still watching cortana, search protocol, searchui, phone, photos and services running in the background and watching their activity in my personal files.

    I took ownership of all 700+ cortana files/folders and deleted them. Ran CCleaner and saw that I still had a lot of activity on the webcache.dat Watching task manager I noticed Cortana had been replaced by windows store, photos and search filter, search protocol along with searchui constantly running. Using CCleaner I removed store, photos, phone and all the rest of these apps I don't need nor want and all that have no business running on my pc.

    Now I still have the webcache even though the task is disabled, even though the registry entries have been removed... However there are no websites listed in these files; just everything I do, create or open. I would still love to be able to stop it from caching my files leaving a direct link to anything I create - even on bitlockered drives BUT I am feeling a little better now that I do not have 20 files in that location everyday with thousands of websites appearing to have access to my files.
    I just wanted to add after my post yesterday... I took ownership of all webcache files in windows and deleted them - now I have absolutely no files for webcache.dat and when I connect to the internet I have a significantly smaller number of endpoints and open connections. Does not seem to effect internet nor windows.

    Additionally to the steps above, what worked for me and has completely disabled the creation of WebCacheV01.dat is this.
    Disable All the Addon's in IE, the only file now created is SuggestedSites.dat

    Hope it helps
