Hello

I am using IE6.   I have an application that runs in a IE window.  However, this application refreshes itself every couple of minutes.

I do not want the window to refresh, because it scrolls back to the top of the window, thus hiding the information that is desired to be viewed, which is at the bottom of the page.

How do I disable this?

Thanks
Jeff

Hi enoch,
Access security settings in Internet Explorer by clicking Tools ("View" in earlier versions of IE) > Internet Options > Security (tab) > click the "Custom Level" button

Allow META REFRESH: set to disable

Cheers!
