    *Cache: In order to help load web sites faster on your computer, once you visit a page on the internet, your computer will save a copy. This copy, saved on your computer, is called a Cached copy. If you visit this page again, your computer will load the Cache copy onto you screen which is much faster then redownloading a new copy. Most of the time this is just fine, but problems can occur if the page has been updated since it was stored on your computer. This causes you to view an older, out-of-date copy. Clearing your cache will force your computer to download a new copy of the page your are trying to view and insure you are viewing the latest information.
