Need help with the following error:

Network Error Unable to read URL from host g.msn.com: Connection reset by peer

I have ran Spybot and AdAware to no avail. Windows 98 is OS.

Help!

Thanks :mad:

This sub domain is owned by Microsoft, however it timed out for me as well. Why do you need to access it?

I plugged Network Error Unable to read URL from host g.msn.com: Connection reset by peer into Google and you are not the only one with that issue. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find an answer. I'm assuming you have msn so why not give them a poke and see if they can tell you what's up.

MSN charges a hefty fee for providing you with info outside of their posted FAQ's.

I know this is an old thread, but FYI -- I just had a customer with this same problem. The problem turned out to be AdSubtract, which was using a local Proxy to block pop-ups and somehow prevented the browsers (not just IE) from connecting to g.msn.com

Hope this helps someone!
