    Dell Dimension 4550 it is about 5 years old: anymore info needed? My problem is Microsoft Internet Explorer. I tried re-downloading the software with no luck. So I am now using Firefox. The computer was freezing up (sounds like a virus) I am using Norton Antivirus. I know virus's can still bypass the virus protection. My computer would not work this morning (Internet Explorer). I have already tried deactivating the firewall with no success.

    What type of Computer?
    Was this always a problem with this Computer?

The internet said that they can not bring up your web page.


Internet Explore Cannot Display the Webpage
As you browse the Web with Internet Explorer, you may occasionally encounter an error message about the browser being unable to display the requested Web page.
If your browser is unable to display a page, the issue lies somewhere along the path from your computer to the remote website. In some cases, you can resolve the issue by troubleshooting your computer or Internet connection. Internet Connection Issue
If Internet Explorer is unable to display any pages at all, see if you are able to browse the Web on another computer.
If none of the computers in your home can browse, the problem is related to your Internet connection.
In some cases, you can resolve an Internet connection issue by unplugging the power connections for your broadband modem and router temporarily.
If you are still unable to browse, contact your Internet service provider for further assistance.

Malicious Software
If you are unable to browse the Web on your computer but can browse on other computers, the computer itself has an issue. In some cases, this can mean that your computer is infected with malicious software.
Download an anti-virus program on another computer and run it on the affected computer to troubleshoot the issue.


User Error If you receive an error in Internet Explorer when you attempt to browse to a single website, but other websites work, check to make sure that you are entering the address of the website correctly.
By default, Internet Explorer searches the Web for a close result if the address you entered is not associated with an actual website. If you have disabled this feature and enter a website address incorrectly, Internet Explorer displays an error message.

Remote Website Issue

If you are unable to browse to a single website and are certain that you have entered the website address correctly, it is likely that the website itself has a problem.
You can wait and attempt to view the website again later, or search for the website on Google or another search engine and click the "Cached" link to view a recent cached copy of the website.

Normally this is caused by a bad Proxy Settings. I have included the instructions below to assist you:

To check your Firefox proxy settings:

  1. At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Tools menu and select Options...
  2. Select the Advanced panel.
  3. Select the Network tab.
  4. In the Connection section, click Settings....
  5. Change your proxy settings:
    • If you don't connect to the Internet through a proxy (or don't know whether you connect through a proxy), select No Proxy.
    • If you connect to the Internet through a proxy, compare Firefox's settings to another browser's (Such as Internet Explorer. See Microsoft's guide to proxy settings).
  1. Close the Connection Settings window.
  2. Click OK to close the Options window

When I try to log on to Facebook it says Connection Failed, it doesn't matter whether I'm using Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer it says the same with both.


You should contact your PROVIDERS access. Ask the IP address of DNS server, and put in the web configuration (TP / IP) of your network connection ..
That's it.

Make sure that you have an Internet connection. If you do, then optimize your browser to see if that would help. Please follow the steps below:

* For Internet Explorer
- Open your Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options
- Click on Delete button under the Browsing History.
- Close and re-open your Internet Explorer
- Try accessing these Web sites again

* For Mozilla FireFox
- Open your Firefox > Tools
- Select "Clear Recent History" > select Everything from the drop-down arrow
- Click "Clear Now".
- Close and re-open Firefox

These should resolve the issue.

Have a great day!
