Page has Expired in IE only!

I get this message from a site I visit/use daily, when using IE6 and after using their forms/links and hitting back:

Warning: Page has Expired 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.

But I don't get it when using Netscape. I never use to get it when using IE6 until about a week ago. I understand about posting the data etc. But don't understand why it would only start happening now and why NN wouldn't do the same thing? The pages are ASP pages.

I find it interesting that you have this problem, since I also have IE 6 and don't experience it, but did on prior versions, and this is what I had found in that regard on the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

This problem can occur for either of the following reasons:
You have the "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" option enabled in Internet Explorer Advanced Settings.
You are connected to an Active Server Page (.asp) Web page on a Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) version 4.0 server, and the Web page uses the "cache-control: private" tag in the header.
NOTE: This problem only occurs on HTTP/1.1-compliant servers. Cache- control directives are not supported on HTTP/1.0 servers.
RESOLUTION
To resolve this problem, either disable the "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" option, or obtain and install the latest version of Internet Explorer. You can obtain the latest version of Internet Explorer from the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/ 
To work around this behavior, have the administrator for the Web page place the following tag in the header of the .asp Web page:
<%Response.CacheControl="Public"%>

Completely different technology in the two browsers. IE is ActiveX based.

Recommend WindowsUpdate to download patches and fixes delivered.

Be right back with some other links.

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

Alternative download site for IE6 if you don't want to do the WindowsUpdate process (highly recommended, though to use WindowsUpdate).
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.asp

You may also benefit by clearing your Temporary Internet files, history files (including offline pages) and rebooting.  Depending on your Operating System, it also helps to clear the clutter and improve performance by running Maintenance (cleanup/scandisk/defrag).

Some have benefitted by clearing the "autocomplete" items as well.

I have IE 6 configured to automatically updated Web Pages at "each visit" versus "automatically", and find that better serving my needs.

Good luck,
