Have you thought that it might not be a problem?

Question

I have MS IE 6.0. When browsing the Internet I get the message "Warning: Page has Expired " when using my "back" button, which I use when there's no link to go back to previous page. The rest of the message reads: "The page you requested was created using information you submitted in a form. This page is no longer available. As a security precaution, Internet Explorer does not automatically resubmit your information for you. To resubmit your information and view this Web page, click the Refresh button. "

I went to the Microsoft help pages to find the question, which I did find and it suggested downloading IE service pack SP1, which I did but it didn't take care of the problem. I'm sure there's some simple solution but when I look at my "Internet Options" on the tools button I can't see anything that relates to the error message so am completely in the dark on this one.

I don't recall having this problem when I first bought this computer 2 1/2 years ago and wonder what might have changed. I have had Norton Professional Security 2003 for over a year but wonder if this might have something to do with my problem. I don't have the problem when I use the Opera browser so tend to use that when I can but some of my programs (genealaogy) automatically do searches for me through MS IE.

Any light you can shed on this subject will be very much appreciated.

I think what you are explaining is not a problem It all depends on which websites you are visiting There are certain websites that are high security and will not allow you to backtrack on their website

This mainly happens when you enter some information on to a website press submit, or ok And then click the back button.

If this is happening with every single website that you search, then I highly suggest you download any updates that your computer needs ou can go to windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ to download all the updates that you have not yet downloaded for your computer Once you download the updates and install you should be fine.
