Just about every five minutes, the same old page pops up. "Page Cannot Be Displayed". Then I have to wait about 30 seconds-two minutes before refreshing it and then it comes up just fine. It's not spyware, I already ran a bunch of scans and even got it checked here on this forum, that part is fine. But this internet trouble is driving me MAD!! It's so frustrating!! :whistling:

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! :blink:

I am not going to recommend an alternative browser without addressing the original issue in IE. Confuzzled, how do you connect to the Internet? Do you have this problem on all sites or any certain ones in particular? Does a refresh always correct the page display?

Actually I quite recently (a few hours ago actually) downloaded Mozilla. Ehh. It does the same thing, only different. This is what comes up instead:

Of course when I WANT the page to come up, it's nowhere to be found. -_-

It basically says the server cannot be found. And then it has a "try again" button.
I press try again...it usually takes 30 seconds-two minutes to find it again. -sigh- >> Evilness.

It only comes up about 75% of the time.
That's quite an improvement in comparison to the 93% of the time it came up in Internet Explorer.

I have a modem...my internet is just...on. I turn it off once in a while, it's not *always* on.
I have Optimum Onlineee.
Cable...blah.

On all sites.
Refreshing always corrects it...but I need to wait a little while and then refresh.
But often I get so frustrated I give up on it altogether.

AHA!
Here's one of the error messages I frequently come to on Mozilla Firefox.

The connection was reset













The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.








* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I do not think the LSP fix is going to make any difference. Please visit the malware forum, and get expert advice there after trying the System File Check and a reboot.

I just came from there. They said (after telling me to delete a whole bunch of stuff, which I did) my computer was all clean. :whistling:
