Thanks K33.

The workaround mentioned in the article functions just as Rt click on the PGP icon>clear cache

C:\Program Files\PGP Corporation\PGP Desktop>pgpnetshare.exe --lock-all
Done.

When I run the command it says Done but when I enter the passphrase it is cached again.

So my issue still remains unresolved.
