Home page not updated

by letmrun / November 10, 2005 7:06 AM PST

I use MSN as my home page and its not updated. It loads fine but it has two days old informatiom on it.
I've run Spybot-Search & Destroy and Ad-Aware SE thinking maybe I got a bug but that didn't help.
I'm also currently updated with all Windows updates. This problem has happened before but usually corrects itself some how.
Thanks for any help.

I've had problems with msn, and if I didn't have an email address I'd ditch it. My problems concern pages at the sides not opening in emails, not able to save instant message conversations, and general intrusion.

eg, hit the browser Refresh button, or emptied your Temporary Internet Files folder, and if other web sites update OK, then it is probably not you but MSN.

Thanks Mark. Emptied Temp.Int.files did the trick. I usually do that every week or so. Its just strange why only MSN home does that.
