I use WinMe and when I try to open a web page I sometimes get an error message saying "Cannot find server." When I click on the automatic "Detect Network Settings" I can usually get access to the web page. Is there something I need to adjust? I have my security setting at medium-high if that makes a difference. I am also using Spybot, AVG, and Ad-aware.

How do you connect to the internet?
What operating system are you running?

Hi Del-I am using a dial-up with NetZero and my OS is Windows Me. One other thing-I use WebWasher also, but I don't always have it running when this occurs. Do you think it could be because of my attempts to stop pop-ups, tracking, etc.?

Possible the pop up stopper, but don't think so,
Where are you clicking automatically detect network settings?

The error screen that i get says "you may need to adjust your browser" and then further down the page it says that i can let Windows look for my settings. That's where i click on the "Detect network settings."
