    WHEN TRYING TO GO TO A WEB PAGE, I GET THIS ERROR PAGE


    The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Please try the following:

    Click the Refresh button, or try again later.

    If you typed the page address in the Address bar, make sure that it is spelled correctly.

    To check your connection settings, click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Connections tab, click Settings. The settings should match those provided by your local area network (LAN) administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).
    If your Network Administrator has enabled it, Microsoft Windows can examine your network and automatically discover network connection settings.
    If you would like Windows to try and discover them,
    click Detect Network Settings
    Some sites require 128-bit connection security. Click the Help menu and then click About Internet Explorer to determine what strength security you have installed.
    If you are trying to reach a secure site, make sure your Security settings can support it. Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section and check settings for SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, PCT 1.0.
    Click the Back button to try another link.



    Cannot find server or DNS Error
    Internet Explorer


    I get this all the time. I have done all of the above suggestions. When I clck on Detect Network settings, Nothing happens. Any suggestions

    Does this happen with many web pages, or only a few ? If it is only a few, the sites may be very busy and cannot respond at the time you are trying to connect. Try them again later. There may be some that have gone out of business and will never respond.

    Your "Detect network settings" results may depend on what Operating System you are using, whether you are or are not an administrator, whether or not you are on a local network, etc. Post back with that sort of information if the problem persists.

    Happens with many web pages. I understand that some pages may not let you in, but there are sites I used to frequent but can't get to them either.
    Not sure about the network, where do I look for that under internet options?

    Thanks 911

    Also I moved my computer around and now have no sound, any suggestions?

    What computer (make, model, speed, Memory size) ?
    What browser ?
    What ISP ?
    Is it your own private computer, or one where you work ?
    Name a few of the web pages that you cannot get to.

    Hi DUMAS40,

    Go to Tools> Options > Programs >Click on Reset Web Pages > You might want to uncheck reset your home page when you do this.

    It worked for me. Hope it does the trick for you too. Reboot after resetting the 'web pages'.

    Regards,
