    Having successfully logged on the Internet and worked at various tasks (E-Mail, Google searches various URLS, etc) we leave the computer ON as we go to do other non PC tasks.

    When we return after sometime, we are “locked out” of the Internet with the “This Page Cannot Be Displayed" screen pops up. We click on one of the “WHY” selections and get the following message;

    Warn HTTP: Error 12007 connecting to www.microsoft.com:
    The server could not be resolved

    The only way we can re-connect to the Internet is to Re-Start the PC then click on the Internet Explorer Icon. This is a slooooooooow process and a real pain in our personal ‘main frame’.

    IS THIS NORMAL?
    IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG IN OUR SET-UP CAUSING THIS?
    IS THERE AN EASIER WORK AROUND RATHER HAVING TO RE-START?

    Our are we just being held technology hostages by the various software applications?

    THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY HELP AND/OR COMMENTS!

    Don

    I've had this happen as well. Usual reasons are:
    1) Time out by your ISP, so it depends on your service
    2) Sometime your modem/ wireless goes out, I had a client whose condo intercom is linksed via same phone line as the ISP and the dsl light goes out.
    3) I strongly suggest you contact help desk at ISP and ask them your kicked off question, since you can get on okay it is NOT your software IMHO
    4) If you have a firewall you could tempoarity disable it an see what happens

    I agree........... talk to your provider. DSL is supposed to be on 24/7.
    There is a problem somewhere.
    Good luck!
