    i go to a search engine. i put in a query. let's say 15 results show up. i
    click on the first one, i go to that web site. i am not satisfied with the
    info, i hit the back button to go to the first results page. when i am there
    the fist link is not colored differently to show that i was already to that
    link. what do i need to do to get my pc to do this. i have xp with microsoft
    word 2000.

    Why are you starting a new thread?

    We don't know who you're answering to and we cannot follow up his thread.

    Just because *you* cannot see it doesn't mean it wasn't there where the OP
    and initial responder posted...

    New threads (solo or starter articles) do NOT have a References header.
    This header lists the series of articles in a [sub]thread. Notice there
    is a References header in Jim's post. That means Jim *was* replying to
    another post. In Jim's reply was:

    References: <2266AF9D-40ED-4552-8946-AEDC3B69D2C5@microsoft.com>

    That means Jim was REPLYING to an article whose Message-ID was the value
    shown above. Something is screwed up with YOUR newsreader (XNews) or
    the NNTP server to which you connect (Microsoft's) is screwed up in its
    article database (you can't find the article) or in their overview
    database (the article shows up in a header list pane but you cannot
    retrieve the article).

    Message-ID: <2266AF9D-40ED-4552-8946-AEDC3B69D2C5@microsoft.com>

    Jim replies on 7/27/10
    Message-ID: <v2tt46577nvorlur6q4rhkkm5orkrv7vcc@4ax.com>
    References: <2266AF9D-40ED-4552-8946-AEDC3B69D2C5@microsoft.com>

    Notice each message has its own unique message ID (MID). Also notice
    that the References header in Jim's reply lists bluesmusicfan's MID. If
    the subthread were longer, there would be more MIDs listed in the
    References header to track that subthread's hierarchy of posts.

    I've been caught on this in the past, too, where I thought someone was
    starting a new thread as their reply instead of replying to an existing
    thread. To make sure I don't do that blunder, I look at the headers to
    see if there is a References header. If there, it was a proper reply
    (although the original article might be so old that your server no
    longer carries it beyond their retention interval). In this case, the
    original post was submitted yesterday so it should still be on the NNTP
    server you use.

    My guess is that you have threading or grouping misconfigured in Xnews
    so you end up seeing lots of orphaned replies. For help with Xnews, ask
    the folks over in the news.software.readers group. You've been posting
    long enough with Xnews that you should know how to configure its
    threading or a view using grouping. I don't use Xnews to know if the
    symptom you noticed is some corruption with your local message store for
    Xnews or a problem with Microsoft's NNTP server (which I quit using long
    ago due to problems with it in accepting some otherwise legit posts).

    Zim zim, ala bim. Hold! The spirits are about to speak.
    Nope, they can't see your monitor, either.
    Sorry, way too many web browsers out there to guess which one you use.

    So, in your unidentified web browser, do you have it configured to
    retain history for some number of days? The color highlighting of
    previously visited links is a function of your history cache in whatever
    web browser you use. If you don't have it save any history or to flush
    its history on every exit from it then you have no history for it to see
    that you previously visited a site. Some security or cleaner utilities
    will do the same thing by wiping your web browser's history.

    And what does using an old version of MS Word have to do with your
    visiting of web sites?
