My browser isn't refreshing when I click on a previously visited link.

I have a brand new computer fresh out of the box. When I click on a lot of the links that I previously visited, it shows whatever was there when I last visited. Like for example, on a forum I was on, it looked like no one posted in hours until I finally thought to refresh the page and everything showed up. Just seems a little weird that it'd be doing that since it's brand new and all. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to correct the problem?

I'm assuming your browser is IE (8 or 9) since you said it's a brand new computer. Hopefully this simple maneuver will fix it.

In IE go to Tools>> Internet options>> General Tab Click the "settings" button in the Browsing history section and under the heading "Check for newer versions of stored pages" choose "every time I visit the webpage" or "Automatically" (If the current setting selected was "Never" then there's your answer:)) You may want to click the delete button under the same browsing history & clear the temp files...maybe delete the history cache too.
Click OK OK to close both dialog boxes.

Pages should now refresh.

It was already set to automatically so I changed it to "everytime I visit this webpage" and everything seems to be working now.
