Browser loads wrong page

Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by titojackson52, May 16, 2002.

  1. Lately I have been having a strang problem with IE6 and win XP...

    I'll either link to page or manually type in an address and occasionally the browser loads a completely different page. Typically the page loaded is a page that I have visited recently however this is not always the case.

    In light of this I did try dumping the cache, cookies and local files that have been stored on my disk but I still get the problem.

    Any tips?


    relevant info:
    I am running ICS on this machine.
    Cable ISP
    XP (obviously)
    Zone alarm as the firewall
    am I missing anything?

    The only thing I can find is in this thread. Still looking around.
     
  3. same thing

    He is having a lot of the same problems I have encountered.

    Another thing that I forgot to mention.. This also happened in WinME and is actually the reason why I upgraded to XP (fresh install) .



    I'm glad I'm not alone. All my friends thought I was smoking the pipe.
