Default IE troubles....

Well I am so good at building computers and solving software problems... this one has me boggled. I am over at a friends house and I got on IE and noticed everything is out of date. The forums, weather, the date on yahoo, everything. I deleted the cookies, TMP files and clicked reload and everything was ok. But I closed IE and went to take a pee came back opened it up and everything is out of date again. I am really confused.Anyone help?

Did you check the Time/Date settings in Windows ... just to eliminate the obvious?


And ripping on IE is for the ignorant. There is really nothing wrong with it. If it has problems it is the user'* fault.

Just to clear something up...I was not ripping on IE, I still use it alot...im just kidding...i personally just like the features of FF better.

I consider myself a very advanced computer user, my computer runs perfectly at all times, just the way i want it to...and I still like FF better..so its not always the users fault. I dunno. Someone slap me if im OOL.
