Internet pages show old content

by mcd416 / August 24, 2005 12:44 AM PDT

When I open a web page that has previously been viewed on my computer, I get the old page instead of the current one. For example, I'll open the page for my local newspaper and the page that opens has the date of the last day I viewed it. To load today's page I have to click Refresh. This also happens on any pages I have saved on My Favorites. I need to click Refresh on all pages to get current information.

I am running Windows XP media center edition on a Dell Inspiron.

Any suggestions for fixing this problem?

In Internet Explorer, Goto Tools > Internet Options.

In the General tab, click the "Settings" button under "Temporary Internet Files".

In the new window, if "Never" as been chosen under "Check for newer versions of stored pages", change it to "Automatically".

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
