Jema, deleting all temporary internet files when you disconnect and manually deleting cookies is not the same as clearing out the internet cache in IE. IE 6 is so old that I'm not sure if the normal ways of doing that are even valid any more. In the safer IE versions, you click on Tools and then History and clear the history.

Draclvr, I should have said I also checked "Delete History" so the History files are deleted at the same time.

I know this does not delete the caches for these 3 folders, so I also ran CCleaner to delete the Index.dat files (caches) for them and rebooted so it would become effective.

Sounds like you've covered the bases. An interesting experiment to try would be to download and install Firefox and see if the same thing happens in that browser.

Draclvr, I'm not going to try that - I don't want a 2nd browser on my system.

If I'm the only person at GB using IE that is experiencing this, one would think it's some setting in just MY browser that has changed, but that's not the case.

It was just a thought! I only meant to try it as an experiment to see what happened and then uninstall it. Heck, I've got 4 browsers on my computer. I just downloaded Opera today to try it out after Jenny100, traveler and Homer talked about how much they like it. The jury is still out on that one. I always seem to go back to my old favorite Firefox. I don't use IE unless I'm absolutely forced to. I quit using it when there got to be so many security holes in it and just never went back to it full time.
