The page cant be displayed

  alltime 00:39 10 Jul 2004

I am running win xp and ie 6, on a p3 with 384 ram . Trend virus scanner with the realtime scan off. Lots of the time when i connect to the internet (bt broadband) it says the page cant be displayed. I reboot the computer and most of the time it works. but still takes several seconds to load the home page (10) is there any adjustments i can make to improve this. I have taken the real time scan off and disabled th firewall.

Hi mate

Go through all the normal things on this one I am afraid :-(

Reinstall IE6

Run spyware/adware scans
(Search for Adaware/Spybot on

Check enough memory is free in Task Manager
(Alt Cntrl Dlt - Performance)

Virus scan

Once you have done those then you'll want to check the connection etc filters and line problems. May be a case PC needs a good tidy up. A bit vague I know but should help.

There can be many causes of this...

Yeah Spybot is a good adware/spyware program.
