on the Desktop Search pages.
For instance on their FEATURES page ( http://desktop.google.com/features.html ) it explains this caching and also explains how to REMOVE cached pages (click the "Removing Results" link at the top of that page) and within that portion of the page it explains how to set your preferences to avoid caching.
Reading the FINE manual is a good way to answer most questions about a program's FEATURES and functions.
I am new to the Google Search program. Why when I Search Desktop, do I find previously delted emails (both recent and old) that I thought were permanetly deleted? I am using Norton Systemworks and the Norton Recyle Bin is set to NOT save. I am using Incredimail as my email program and always empty the Delete Bin before exiting the program. Aso, what is the difference between Search Desktop and Search the Web? Very confusing ..........
