    Hello all.

    I've having computer troubles again, this time with Internet Explorer. See, about a week ago, I was getting pretty tired of having all these previous links pop up when I was typing URL's in my address bar, so I decided to find a way to stop it. I tried, and did it, but now a problem arises from that. Whenever I go to a site, it's exactly the same as the last time I went to it. For example: I go to a site like Penny Arcade, or a web blog site like Xanga, and the first entry they made after I deleted my cookies is the latest one. They could make a million entries after that, and I would never be able to see them until I deleted my cookies again.

    So basically, I have to delete my cookies every time I want to "refresh" a page. I tried to go back and figure out how I got to this point in the first place, but I don't remember. I hope you guys can help.

    Thanks for any help in advance,

    -Maverick Hunter Yoshimitzu

    What exactly did you do to stop auto complete and what version of internet explorer and operating system are you using here ?

    Apparently that did it. I just had unchecked Autocomplete. Works fine now.

    I originally did it as an attempt to clear all my internet files, something I hadn't done in years. I guess I unchecked something in the process that caused my problem. Everything's fine now, as fine as can be with my computer anyway. Thanks.

    I'm having the same problem. I deleted the cookies via Internet Options (as well as the history and temporary internet files) and when I was here at TSG, the pages were not refreshing, as in if I go to my control panel, it brings up the page it was when I was there, same with a thread, it didn't show all the posts, just the ones that I saw previously. It refreshes ok if I press refresh though :confused:
