How can I disable the DLL cache in Windows 2000?

A. To remove the DLL cache in Windows 2000 which the system file checker service uses and that can take up about 200MB of space enter the following commands:

C:\> sfc /cachesize=0
C:\> sfc /scannow

The sfc /scannow forces it to remove the cached files.
