Question:

I am getting this message almost every other time I do anything in Adaptive. Do you know what's causing it?

Answer:

Web browsers and Java save files onto your computer when you visit websites. Because your browser can display the files stored in its cache much faster than it can pull fresh files from a server, the next time you visit that site, the use of cached files will help cut down page load time. Sometimes a corrupted or stale file in the cache can prevent an application from running. You can safely delete the temporary files that Java and your browser downloads since they will download them again and ensure they are up-to-date.

A component failed to load message indicates that the caches should be cleared. The steps are below:
