Windows 7: Cannot access Login page

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and 32-bit
Cannot access Login page

We have two computers - both have Windows 7. The only difference I can think of between the two is the one that can't access a Login page on a website is a Windows 7 Professional 64bit.
I'm trying to access an updated webpage for my club Artistic Woodturners of NW Florida > Home. Clicking on the Login button does nothing - no error message - nothing.

Any suggestions?

Hello rthomas268,

What browser are you using?
I tried with IceDragon (FireFox), Chromium (Google Chrome) and Internet Explorer, and while FireFox and Chrome loaded the log in screen with no problem, IE did as you described.

I suspect that the problem is your browser, you might want to check Mozilla FireFox or Google Chrome.

Good luck and keep us posted!

How do I clear my web browser cache?

By clearing the cache (stores data so that future requests for the data are served faster), your browser is going back to the web server to request the page, rather than just serving you what it has cached/stored.

Found the problem. Had to add the website to Compatibility View. Never had this happen before.

Thanks for the responses.
