I just had aproblem, which has been going on for about a week or so.,

I will be online and then all of a sudden I get a message that says:
"Internet Explorer cannot open site and up at the top of the page in the left hand corner I will see the following. "Cannot Find Server"

Could this be spyware?

Click start, control panel, internet options, delete files, delete cookies, clear history, confirm, click advanced, tick do not save encrypted pages to disc, tick empty temporary internet files folder when the browser is closed, click apply

You can replace the tick for temp internet folder and click apply if dial up takes ages to load pages

Had a funny thing happen this morning. Whilst trying to que up Geek To Go(this site) I got the message, "Cannot Find Server". So I cliked "Home Page" but the connection was still there. Cliked on Geeks to Go and no problem encountered.

Problem with "cannot connect" is still going on with Windows 98", but just now new problem with Windows XP. Just tried to look at web page, but box appears on screen telling me I'm working offlilne and if I wish to connect, but systray icon for Internet is flashing and I can still get my home page. Could this be a problem with my Internet Provider.
