When I am browsing the web, sometimes I can put an address in in the page will not display until I press refresh. I can then be happily surfing away and then the same thing happens, and I have to press refresh again. It isn't any specific address either. I am using AOL version 9 via broadband. Please help!!

Are you using Win XP?

Yes I am using XP

Go to Tools, Internet Options, Temporary Interntet Files and delete Cookies and then Files.

Close browser and try again.

I haven't got AOL 9 so the procedure may be slightly different to delete temp files.

That will elliminate one possible cause.

Take care deleting cookies, as there might be some info for certain sites that you don't want to loose (EG. STEAM stores certain info in a cookie regarding your O/L STEAM account).

I have tried all the usual deleing cookies, file and temp internet files - all to no avail. It is a problem with AOL? Should I change my ISP or will it still be the same with the others?

Questions... Probably things you've thought of, but...

Has it always done this? Have you upgraded to broadband recently? Have you upgraded AOL browser recently?
