Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Thank you all again for your help and continuing with my theme of today to get things sorted, I have the following message, sometimes, when I try to access a website on IE.

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.

What you can try:
Diagnose Connection Problems

More information

This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

Internet connectivity has been lost.
The website is temporarily unavailable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.

For offline users

You can still view subscribed feeds and some recently viewed webpages.
To view subscribed feeds

Click the Favorites Center button , click Feeds, and then click the feed you want to view.

To view recently visited webpages (might not work on all pages)

Click Tools , and then click Work Offline.
Click the Favorites Center button , click History, and then click the page you want to view.

Any ideas?

Try.Run type in cmd then press Ok.Command prompt will open type in ipconfig /flushdns[small space between ipconfig and forward slash or it will not work] should tell you DNS cache has been flushed if so reboot and see if it runs any better.

Should work with any of them.Works for me on XP. Bit of a poet.
