Where does IE7 store AJAX script?
Deleted files but it's still there!

I was testing an AJAX script for a category dropdown box. There were three files with one being index.html. I have deleted all the files from the folder they were in, and also from the recycle bin. I have cleared my cache, temporary files, cookies, anything that I could think of. Closed the browser and rebooted.

The results I get:
www.example.com/folder/ - data from the AJAX script shows on the screen.
www.example.com/folder/index.html - gives me a 404.
www.example.com/folder/index.php - the correct data appears.

This only happens in IE7. Firefox shows the correct data.

So just where is IE7 storing this script?

I have fixed the problem, though I still don't understand why I was having it.

When the script wasn't working for me, I started testing a different one and in the process ended up with two </script> in the header. Once I removed one, no more problem.

I'm just a bit confused on how IE was remembering it when the file was no longer there.
