Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

Webpage Browser Connection

My Windows Internet Explorer browser will only connect to some URL's but not all. It just keep trying to connect and then it times out.

My security settings are as low as it can go and my privacy setting is set to accept all cookies.

I'm not having any issues with connecting to the Internet because I am receiving email form Microsoft Outlook successfully and again I can connect to some URL's like Google.com, but not others.

Please advise.

Thank you.

Hi. Try Tools, Internet Options, Reset. Also might be worth having a quick look in c:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc at the Hosts file. Open it with Notepad and make sure you havent got a load of webpages in there being blocked.
Try those.

Why does my computer keep saying Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage, and i have great wifi connection?


There is a typo in your homepage URL. Internet Explorer tries to display this non-existent page
every time you start up your browser.
Fix - jump through these GUI hoops, and type in your favorite URL (Universal Resource Locator).
Tools > Internet Options > General > Home page

Cant open mirosoft website


When you open your browser and it cannot load the web page that means there is no internet connection... if there is... then the connection is not stable..

Try this, could help you stabilize your connection...On the top of your web browser, on the File menu , uncheck the "Work Offline"...........If you are using a wireless internet connection.. disable the firewall setting of your windows so that windows will allow the connection of internet and will not be strict...If you are using a broadband router make sure it is receiving high signal... and make sure to keep away the unit 1 meter from any live wiring or wall outlet..

I hope that solve your connection issues..

Much appreciated if you rate this help..thanks..

Internet explorer keeps telling me cannot display webpage


First check whether you are connected to the internet through a proxy or directly. Then check internet option connection lan setting option maybe those should be kept to automatic or point to the right server. Then in the internet explorer go to the internet option , advanced and click reset button that should do the trick. Also if this doesnot work download firefox and install it. when you can see pages in firefox that means everything is okay and it is problem with the browser. replace your browser with new ie8 and thats all

Internet explorer not working


Check whether your internet connection is working properly or not. To check this ping to your DNS Server of your internet service provider. If you get a reply from the DNS Server then the problem is with your browser, if so then install another browser like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. If you dont get a reply from DNS server contact your ISP and resolve the Issue with them.

My computer keeps saying ''webpage cannot be displayed''


Hello monkie_gurl2,

This usually happens when the browser cannot access the internet. Make sure your firewall settings allow the browser to access the internet. Also, make sure you are connecting to the internet ok by checking email. And internet explorer can help diagnose the problem by selecting the 'Tools' menu option and then selecting 'Diagnose Connection Problems...'. Finally, the internet explorer settings can be examined and changed by selecting the 'Tools' menu option and then selecting 'Internet Options'

I thank you for giving a rating to this solution if it has been helpful.

Have a great day,

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage


Try to check if the connection you have from the internet is suffecient to load a page in your browser.Cause sometimes the reason why the page cannot display is because of a slow and insuffecient internet connections  Then if it has a suffecient connection then try to open the browser options and try to see the security or the privacy options and try to see the cookies if it is enable.
