Hey Don -
Not sure why I didn't think of that ... Michael is correct ... clear
your cache, and the history while your at it, plus the temp files too :)
this is general maintenance you should perform weekly / monthly,
depending on your internet usage ... this helps to keep things running
some what smoothly on your end :)
if you are using Netscape browser ...
go to Edit > Preferences
> Navigator > History [clear History]
> Advanced > Cache [clear Cache]
> Privacy & Security > Cookies > Cookies Manager [remove all cookies]
if you are using Internet Explorer browser ...
go to Tools > Internet Options
on the General tab
[Delete Files...] < that's the browser temp files
If your using another browser, perhaps you or someone else can share,
what the exercise might be ... to enlighten other's :)
you might want to view your History first before clearing it out, to see
if there was anything that you wanted to bookmark / add to your
favorites that you forgot about :)
in Netscape and Internet Explorer do [ctrl] + H will bring it up :)
and then you might do the following also ... but be careful though, if
your not sure or comfortable about deleting other temp files off of your
computer this way ...
Start > Find > Files or Folders ... enter *.tmp then click [Find Now]
might take a few minutes to generate the listing of the "k-zillion" temp
files that might be on your machine :) generally all of them can be
delete from here ... highlight them [i.e. pick the first one, then
scroll to the bottom of the list, then hold the shift key down and pick
the last one] then a right click of the mouse, and select delete ...
note if you are using that mail merge thingy ... like in Pat's Family
Group Sheet Form, and you haven't "backed-up" a copy of your web pages
that's on your computer ... DO NOT delete the file called "groupsheet.tmp"
more later on ...
