also - if you right click and select "refresh" the scores do update.

Most likely due to the company proxy.

Try hitting CTRL + F5 to refresh, I don't believe there is another way around this.

Make sure javascript is activated, this normaly works when having problems with auto refreshing.

it appears java scriptlets are enabled, isthis what you are refering to? if not, please indicate where in (xP / IE7 or 8) settings this can be found.

I think that was what i was refering to... Do you have a link to the page you are refering to?
You could also try playing with the security settings in IE, setting another secuerty level could posibly help if you have some of the applications the page is using blocked on your company computer.

Allso if the page is using plugins like flash or java, you could try updating your plugins.

the plugin or popup is opening up. it is suppossed to refresh (every minute or when data changes) automatically, same as trl f5 or right click and refresh.  maybe it is an issue with the site itself???

It is most likely the web filtering causing the issue, we are investigating - thank you
