Posted on 09/26/2011 7:55:06 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia
Does anyone know why my browser, which is IE7, is not loading the updated versions of some websites? (e.g., HotAir, local news stations) In the case of HotAir, it's loading a page from 2010!
I am thinking that the obvious solution would be to download the newer version of IE; however, I am at work, and for some reason they do not allow us to download anything newer.
Try deleting all contents of the cache folder
Should be able to find this in options or tools.
Run a virus scan or have your IT guys do it.
Otherwise, go into internet settings in IE and clear the browser cache and retry.
Yes, I’ve done that already.
It’s a work computer. He likely has no permissions to install anything.
Go to the same sites and push “F5” and tell us what happens.
Ouch! I hope not. Running McAfee now.
Yes, I’ve been refreshing all day long. And nothing happens.
If this is part of your job, the why don’t you just ask your IT people?
IIRC, CTRL+refresh [CTRL+F5] will also work to force the newest website page to load.
Have you rebooted?
Sometimes it takes a reboot to clear the cache and stuff that gets lodged in memory.
Well, generally the IT people frown upon gratuitous internet usage . . .
Tools Menu, Internet Options, Browsing History, Settings
Under "Check for newer versions of stored pages" Select Every time I visit the webpage
If that doesn't fix it for you then I apologize for the pic.
Prepare to apologize . . .
That’s all right; thanks, everyone for your suggestions. I guess I’ll just use my smartphone from now on, and wait until the company finally decides to upgrade.
