    Web Browser Control Working Offline

    Is there a way to work the web browser control for viewing off-line (Cached web pages) only?

    Is it possible to view cached web pages from IE9 on a web browser control off-line?

    The reason i am asking this question is because IE9 automatically switches from off-line mode to on-line mode when it cannot find something in the cache by default.

    For forensic purposes this is not acceptable for these reasons:
    Active content (Viruses, java script, activex cookies etc) could be downloaded to the machine
    The web page may have been updated since the user last visited the web page

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,

    Just off the top of my head you may be able to set it to use a bogus proxy to disable any online access. I haven't tried this nor am I sure how the web browser control would react to it but it should not be able to get a live copy from the internet under this condition.
