Within IE - tools - internet option - Connections - check your setup options .... you can choose as I do, to refresh web pages every visit to the page, or perhaps as you note above, change it to automatic.

WindowsUpdate has patches and fixes, depending on your version of IE.  The most current is IE 5.5 with service patch 1.

Correction (too many hours without sleep).  From IE - tools - internet options - general - temporary internet files - settings ..... that's where the options reside.

Long day, good luck, off for a nap.

If I leave my computer unattended connected to the net, will the page automatically refresh or does a page only refresh when I visit it?  I am talking about after setiing "automatic" under tools, internet options, general,
automatic.

If set to automatic, and you're online, pages should refresh as set once you've customized the settings and exited the browser to ensure the settings are in place.  If you're interested in synchronizing and setting up pages for offline viewing, this:

To make the current Web page available offline

On the Favorites menu, click Add to Favorites.
Select the Make available offline check box.
To specify a schedule for updating that page, and how much content to download, click Customize.
Follow the instructions on your screen.
 Note

Before you go offline, make sure you have the latest version of your pages by clicking the Tools menu and then clicking Synchronize.

Personally, I've chosen to update/refresh each visit to the page, since if I'm not there, I don't want my browser interrupting my other activities unless and until I wish to view the page.  All end-user preferences, of course.

If I've misunderstood what you seek, let me know.

Within IE - help - contents and index, search for additional information you may wish, it's fairly good in terms of general information, settings, etc.
