<snip>

That's what most Unix/Linux/*BSD boxes do unless they are running a
local caching name service of some time (BIND, nscd, etc.).  I wasn't
actually aware that Windows had a DNS cache service.

from a windows command prompt, type
ipconfig /displaydns

it's also flushable using
ipconfig /flushdns
