IE6 - HTTP 404 Error - Page Not Found

  SJP 23:19 24 Mar 2003

I am unable to open certain web pages and usually end up with the above error, sometimes I get "Cannot find server or DNS Error
Internet Explorer" messages. I have checked the security settings, made them trusted sites, but still cannot access them

that you are typing in the exactly correct address, and that the page actually exists? I know this is basic but a single typo, or missed "/" will cause this error.

I have had the same problem eventhough the address has been taken from 'favourites'

Its a gem.

Do you try to load pages..... and it sits there for a while and then seems to give up?

If so its could simply be a busy server, or ISP.

However, if this is happening with every site that you try to visit then you may indeed have some internal issues to iron out. At which point I'll have to hand you over to some other, far brighter spark on this board. :-P

Firstly, thanks for all the replies.

Sketch, Yes it takes ages to load, and maybe its "timing out".

Barryoneoff, tried all permutations of spellings/punctuation marks etc, can access from my works PC (via LAN connection).
It only happens with certain sites.
Driving me crazy!!!!!!
