Browser loads wrong page



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?


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.


this seems to have solved my problem....
