thats internet explorer. Close down all your active windows with the X... you might even have to restart your computer to clear them out but you are still in the chat room 4 times.

To clear your cache:

Go to Tools ---> Internet Options ----> clear browsing cache and all cookies.

Reboot the computer and you've just made sure the deed was done.

Don't worry. People at Etsy love to help each other. I'm not a windows person so I can't offer instructions on how to clear your cache, but hang in there, it sounds like you've got some very knowledgeable folks working it out with you.

Appearing multiple times in a chat room is usually an indication that there are network troubles between your computer and our servers.

What generally happens is you are disconnected in some way, then you reconnect. When you reconnect, you see your old self still there. The reason is because the way you disconnected confused the server, and it thinks you're still out there somewhere, just being very quiet. Eventually it will decide the connection is invalid and automatically remove these old copies of you. We call them ghosts.

They're more spooky than anything. They don't hurt anything.

If you're on a wireless connection, try moving closer to the source. If you have a network administrator handy, tell him you're dropping packets. Good luck!
