"The page cannot be displayed"

Aprox. 3 times out of four when I try to access a web page I get the above message. Occasionally I can eventually get in by repeatedly pressing Restore. But mostly I just give up.

The problem started a couple of weeks ago when I picked up some spyware, and removed it (I think) using Counterspy and AVG antivirus.

I run Windows XP home with SP2, Internet Explorer, a wireless router and firewall and Tiscali 1Mb broadband.

I'd be grateful for some advice.

Try this download, click here , update, then run. There maybe still some nasties about.

Thanks dadyassa. Unfortunately I can't download because of the problem I described. Any ideas?

Can a friend download it and burn it onto a disc for you?

Thanks. Why didn't I think of that?

I'm sorry to say I eventually managed to download Ewido but it didn't do the trick.

After a bit more playing I've convinced myself the problem is to do with my wirelss broadband router. Can anyone tell me if this sounds like a worthwhile avenue to explore?

Are you running any Internet filtering applications?
I had to stop using FilterGate for exactly the problems you describe.

Thanks all. I've discovered the problem - it was a problem with my wireless router. I've temporarily replaced it with a cable and the problem has gone away.
