    hi, everybody

    i have a really special problem. i surf the internet everyday and i mostly visit the same websites.
    About 14 days ago it started. one of my favorite newssite didn't update anymore even they update every 30 minutes. I got for about one week the same Homepage! only, if i opened a column, there were the updated contents. i checked it on another computer and there it worked. after one week it started to get normal. but now i have the same problem again and worse two more websites have the same problem.
    i tried antivirus, ad-aware, spybot etc.. i really have no idea what's the problem?
    I have a pt4, os : win xp pro, ie 6.0 ( i tried it with opera and got the same result--- nytimes from last thursday )

    many thanks for your help

    Delete ya cookies (IE properties) as ya cookie folder is likely full. This happens to me after I've done some extra heavy surfin' for a few days.

    since it is a recent problem than most probably it is not a settings related problem but i m taking my guess out here.

    Open your browser (IE). Click on the 'Tools' menu. Then go to the bottom of this drop-down menu and click on 'Internet Options...'. In the middle of the box under the 'General' tab, you will see a button under the heading 'Temporary Internet Files' that reads 'Settings' ... click on this 'Settings' button.
    Make sure that IE is set to check for newer versions of the page 'Every visit to the page'. Click 'OK'.

    usually it is set as "Automatic"

    do tell us what you did that started this problem, example installing a new software or something...

    asklepios, i tried it but it didn't change.

    i didn't do anything special during the time it began. i already tried to restore, but the same.
    is it possible, that this might be a problem of the isp?

    Thanks for your help.

    hi,
    i just talked to my isp. they told me, to press Ctrl+F5 and the problem was solved. But they couldn't tell me, what cause this problem?
    do you have any ideas, what could have cause the problem?
    Thanks a lot.

    Plain F5 is refresh... I have no idea what Ctrl F5 is... maybe Clear History, or Force refresh ?

    actually u r not alone.

    i have this problem too. i have heard that some ISP's cache a few popular pages or pages that are frequently visited. i even get it with TT...i have to hit "Ctrl+F5" everytime i edit my posts so as to view the edited post otherwise it won't be updated till atleast 10 minutes.

    another difference that i have heard between simple F5 and Ctrl+F5 is that when you press Ctrl along with F5, the browser breaks all the current connections with the website's server and connects again thus showing you updated content but i could be wrong :shrug:
