On some sites when I hit the back button I get the following which I find annoying.
I have win XP sp1 and IE6.

I have tried turning security down but cant get round it, this never occured with win ME which I had before.

Hard drive,
I think its as it says-'its a security precaution'.
If you have been typing in confidential info and finalised it,you wouldnt want anybody to hit the back button,while you were away from the pc(i'm not suggesting you were-but circumstance could arise)and gaining all the information you typed in,maybe credit card numbers ect.

It occurs on sites such as BA.com flight arrivals, all I want to do is go back and type in a new flight number and instead I have to re load the page which is a bit tedious and certainly not a security issue--the crdit card example I can quite understand but a flight number???
