    I have been getting alot of errors when I try to visit any website that I had
    visited a few minutes before. It is not one particular site, Its any.... I
    can log on to msn and check my emails then go to another site but when I
    return to msn I get a DNS error, webite can not be found.... this morning it
    was a 404 error... Any ideas? This is driving me crazy!!!! I also get the
    page downloaded but with errors and the little yellow triangle and the ! in
    the middle of it.... Is this fixable? Thanks!!!

  2. Any website or just an msn.com website?

    Always state your IE version and full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3;
    Vista SP1) when posting to this newsgroup, please.

    I have the same thing going on on my computer. P4, 3.2 gh, xp home, sp3, IE
    7. I am looking forward to solution. On mine it is not constant. Surf fine
    for a while then all of sudden I get 404 or 407, and then errors are evertime
    I search. I can often still go "back" and get to previous site, but going
    forward does not work.

  5. We still need to know your IE version.

    If this is a sudden, new problem, when did it start? What changes may you
    have made to your system just before it started (e.g., new hardward;
    installed/uninstalled one or more application; installed updates, including
    WinXP SP3)?

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)?
