Troubleshooting Offline Browsing I'm attempting to browse a Web page offline but IE5 cannot display the desired page. IE5 might not be able to display a page for offline browsing if you have deleted your Temporary Internet Files IE5 uses the Web pages that have been cached in memory and saved as Temporary Internet Files not only for faster access when you browse online but also for browsing offline If you have recently run a disk cleanup utility, such as Disk Cleanup in Windows 98 accessories (or you recently deleted Temporary Internet Files), you may have inadvertently deleted the Web pages stored for offline browsing. One way to prevent this situation is to make a subscription to the pages you want to browse offline and then leave the box unchecked when prompted on whether to delete all subscription content. If you accidentally delete files you need to do offline browsing, reconnect to the page while online, disconnect from the Internet, and continue to use the Web page left in cache.
