I seem to have a problem refreshing web pages. I've gone and cleared everything, deleted files, history, finally ended up with all of my favourites all gone (by mistake) I can't go back in time using system resore.

I'm using windows XP Professional.

I have forum web pages that I can't update. I have tried "refresh" right clicked on the page and "refresh" Control and F5 control and R.

Any suggestions?

Do you get a difference by clicking tools. internet options. settings to change the check for newer version to each visit to the page or each time you start Internet Explorer

It is on "automatically", I did try checking the box for "every visit to the page", but it didn't make a difference. Which one should it be? I had this problem a year or so ago and I can't remember what solved it. I just can't refresh pages, the travel forums that I go on haven't been updated since yesterday morning when I got off them.

Mine is automatically but every visit or each time you open IE should have made a difference

When you have a minute, click start, run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to check the system files.

Go to Microsoft Update from the link to check you have everything for IE

Look at repairing IE

o.k. Finally,

I first tried to run scf/scannow, it sais that windows couldn't find it. So I then downloaded all of the updates, which took a couple of hours (seemed to be running a little slow). Didn't reboot like it said so that I didn't get disconnected from the internet so I then went on to your last tem about reinstalling or repairing IE and came to your original suggestion...Could not find scf/scannow.

Hmmmm... Next?

cant refresh?? this means you are getting a blank page or the original page? How do you know the page is not getting refreshed w/F5, etc? Can i assume these are NOT secure (HTTPS) pages?

What is your OS, internet connection (dsl, cable, dial, etc), ?

P2E

Thanks Keith,

the space worked. Everything seems to be going o.k now. I appreciate your help. This has been a great forum, it's helped me a lot without even having to ask a question before.

have a great day,
