Clearing cache? Not a windows expert. :(

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Tina -, Nov 9, 2003.

  1. There are 2 sites that I visit everyday. All of a sudden, for the past 3
    days, neither will will come up in my browser (IE) for me. I've cleared
    temp internet files, cookies, lowered security settings and everything else
    I can think of. Shut down, powered off, rinse, repeat...still nothing. I
    know for a fact both of these sites are up, because I've had others check.
    Every other site works, just not these 2. Its like my computer has these
    pages cached, and won't let go.

    Any ideas??

    You didn't get the ransom note, did you ?

    I had the same problem about a month ago shortly after upgrading to IE6. Did
    everything you have done and finally uninstalled IE6 and tried to go back to
    IE5.5-still no luck plus the fact that IE6 didn't want to uninstall through
    Add/Remove. Since I hadn't done a reformat and clean install of W98SE in
    about 2 years, I bit the bullet and did it. Needless to say the problem of
    the 4-5 unreachable sites was fixed and I only installed back up to IE5.5.
    Has been OK since so don't know the specific cause unless W98 and IE6
    developed a conflict.

    Start Internet Explorer, click on help, click on About Internet Explorer.
    Scroll down in the little window and see what encryption level you're using.
    It should be at least 128-bit encryption. If it's less than 128-bit, then
    you've more than likely found your problem. Update your encryption level. If
    it's already 128-bit then it's something else.
