XP and Session expired
Error message when pressing the back button on forms with XP only

Does anyboy know how to sort out the error message of expiring session which you get on forms with XP only when the back button of the browser is pressed.

A session will timeout after, by default, 20 minutes. If you aren't using sessions, then turn them off, since they consume resources on the server. If you do need sessions, and the timeout is too fast, you can modify it in the IIS Manager dialogs (Properties/Home Directory/Configuration/App Options/Session Timeout).

You can also modify it on an individual page by setting the Session.Timeout property to the number of minutes you want to timeout in.

Or are you asking something else?

Thanks Xoc but what you are saying is not what I mean, nothing to do with sessions. Indeed, you could have a look what I am saying with webmasterworld itself.

You have to have Windows XP to get the error:

Just go to Site Search and do a search for instance for Google, click on the second page of the Results Page (Results Pages: 1 2 3 4....) at the bottom of the page. Then press the back button of your browser. This is the error I got and only happens with windows XP.

Does anybody know how to sort it out?
