    This is a recent development, I'm not sure if it was after the recent
    Microsoft update or Norton systemworks update or something else went wrong
    (spent the night with Norton engineers They say it's not them) Every time I
    change websites, bring up new web pages or start IE7.0.5730.11 I get
    "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" Then I hit reload and it pops
    right up. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

    does the problem persist in no add-ons mode? To start IE without add-ons,
    press Windows-key+R -> iexplore -extoff -> Enter . If not, start IE
    normally, go to Tools -> Manage Add-ons -> Enable or disable add-ons and
    disable one after the other until you find the problem.

    Hope this will help.

    Norton AV is proven to be incompatible with some aspects of Vista,
    eg. Windows Mail and yet their engineers deny it, so I believe it
    would be worth checking by uninstalling it.

    (Avast is a very good, free, alternative.)

    I cannot connect to a specific Web site when using Norton Internet Security

    Thank you for your Ideas, I have learned from them. Still the same problem. I
    should add I am running Windows XP, Norton systemworks 2006 (no Internet
    security) and I tried disableing every Add on I have. I will wait a day then
    start uninstalling programs. thank you all again.

  6. That could be a symptom of several things, from spyware or slow proxy
    to slow DNS. An HTTP tracer such as FiddlerTool could help clarify
    what is happening. E.g. is the first request going out? does a response
    for it come back? Etc. Tracing with ProcMon also might explain what
    happens instead. E.g. if an unexpected request is sent first or if the
    expected first response is seen but somehow not processed. Etc.

    Good luck
