Every time I try to go to www.dogpile.com this error comes up...



Connection Failure Error

Net Timeout Error

Redirect Loop Error

Unknown Socket Error

Net Reset Error

Offline Error
The connection was refused when attempting to contact www.dogpile.com.

The address (URL) is not a valid format and cannot be read. A typical address will start with "http://", followed by an address, (e.g. www.netscape.com), followed by a path to the content (or just "/"). A common cause for the problem is using backslashes(\) instead of forward slashes (/).

The file specified by the address (URL) cannot be found. Check that the file exists and that you have sufficient permissions to view it.

The address (URL) does not correspond to a known site and could not be loaded. This could be due to a misspelling in the address or because the site does not exist. If the address is known to be valid, or if the problem occurs for many sites, it may be an issue with your proxy service (if you use one) or the directory name service lookup. In such cases you should consult your system documentation, administrator or Internet Service Provider (ISP) as appropriate for further assistance.

The address (URL) starts with a protocol that is not recognized by the browser. A protocol is the part at the front of the address, such as http: or ftp: which tells the browser how to connect to the site. In this instance, the protocol is unknown so loading cannot continue. Check that the address is correct before retrying.

The browser was unable to connect to the specified site, even though it exists. This may be because the site does not accept connections from your computer, the service may be down, or the site does not support the service or port that you tried to connect to.


www.dogpile.net works but then when i get there and try to search i get another error...

The site must be down. Not working here either. :tazz:

Use Clusty.com. It works better than dogpile, but does the same thing. ;)

Dogpile works for me on Firefox.

The fact that it doesnt work on IE makes me wonder....

Dumb question: are your running any kind of web filter like WeBlocker? If so, what happens when you shut it off? :tazz:

Drew

The filters I 'm talking about are installed by employers, parents, and spouses to limit acess to various sites (pornography, gambling, hatespeech etc). Unfortunately, many of them also block innocent sites.

And when they block sites, sometimes they just display an error, rather than clearly display that they are blocking that site.

You would know if you had such blocking on your computer. It would have blocked alot already. They usually show up in the system tray, and it would also show up in an HJT log.

The errors that you were describing reminded me of some of the errors I've seen from blocking/filtering software, plus the fact that it was blocking IE as well. It was just an idea, but you'd likely know if there is web filtering on.

Maybe it would be worthwhile running an HJT scan. But post it in malware, I'm not qualified to help you with HJT yet.
