In internet explorer click on tools>internet options and delete your cookies and tempory files.
It should make a difference.

Sometimes sites that use add-ons can interfere with I.E.
Have you tried resetting it.
Tools>internet options>advanced>reset.

Odd that it is on two systems. Have you switched your router off and back on again? Are you using a Livebox?

Missed that!
Must be something to do with their I.S.P/ network or associated hardware.

Presume the new page you are selecting is not listed as a Tab ( toolbar along the top of the page you are viewing )

The cache on Firefox is under Tools - Options- Privavcy - Private data.
