When I go to open up a web page it will flash up for a second and then quickly switch and say "This page can not be displayed". Does anyone know why it is doing this and how I can fix it? I am logged in on Alden's name right now and its working just fine.

Thanks....Robin :)

Sounds like some spyware somewhere to me. Make sure your Windows updates are current (go to Microsoft's windows update page). Then run something like Ad Aware and/or Spybot Search & Destroy to get rid of any spyware. HTH

Thanks, RedHedd. I've already done that and everything says it is ok. I'll do it again and see if maybe it helps this time.

Thanks for answering.

Did you also dump your cache/temporary internet files? Sometimes that helps with IE starts acting weird. Also run disk cleanup and/or defrag and then reboot.

RobiLee,

I hope you don't have a virus like I did. It drove me crazy!!

Go into "start", click on "programs", then click on "system tools" then "disk defragment" then I think "yes". It'll take a while so be patient, but that might help.

Good luck!
