If there is an option to stop it and then hit refresh then it works but if there isn't I can never open the link???? Please help this is really bugging me!!!!!!!

On a web page, click tools, internet options, click delete files, click delete cookies, click clear history, confirm

Click the advanced tab, tick do not save encrypted pages to disc, tick empty the temporary internet files folder when the browser is closed, click apply

Close IE

Open IE to check a link
