I am suffering a bizarre problem in that I can access most pages on the net, but can't others. My ISP is Sky Broadband in the UK. I have never had this problem before with the countless other ISPs I have used.

On a seemingly random basis, I try visiting some webpages and they are unavailable. I get a page saying:

" Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.

What you can try:
Diagnose Connection Problems

More information "

I try refresh etc. but nothing works.

The pages don't work in either IE or FF.

When I visit the page a few hours later, I can access it.

I have rang Sky customer support a number of times, but the staff don't seem to be particularly knowledgeable and don't fancy calling them again just to be told to delete cookies and reset my Internet Explorer settings.

I am using IE 7.0 on a Windows Vista system.

Anybody else suffer the same issue?

Hello Azma,

Sorry for the late response. Does the same issue happen when running in IE no add-ons mode (Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools, and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons))?

I would suggest trying Firefox - in general it is simply a better browser, even if the problem is resolved.
