Hi Folks,

I just went to go under Tools > Internet Options to clear my cache,
and I got a strange permissions error saying I can't access it!?

It says "contact the administrator" yet I am the only user on this
home PC. See the error here:


I believe I had just yesterday accessed this. I can't think of any
changes I might have made to bring this on. 

Has anyone ever seen this or know of a way to deal with this?

If you want to avoid the "box model hack" with IE and use absolute
widths on  your elements, avoid setting padding and margins. Instead,
use P decender paddings/margins to give yourself room like so:

#leftSide P { padding: 6px 20px; }

With #leftSide being say 500px fixed width, it will show up fine in
all browsers. Then the P declaration will give you 6 pixels on top
and bottom and 20 pixels on left and right, giving you the white
space you need.
