    Internet Explorer Cannot Display the page

    Good afternoon, I have IE7 on vista. On almost every page I go to I
    get the "IE cannot display the page" message but if I do a refresh it
    comes up. It is very slow and takes about 20 sec to get to the
    "cannot display" message and then about another 5-10 after refresh to
    show the page. I reset the modem, restarted, etc. and get the same
    thing. I also get the same thing in firefox. I downloaded some
    registry cleaner program but it did not fix this issue.

    Very slow, very frustrating. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Error message after you install a Windows Internet Explorer 7 update from
    Windows Update or from Microsoft Update: "Webpage cannot be displayed":
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942818

    If tweaking your third-party firewall's settings don't help, try the
    following:

    1. Disable your anti-virus application, any real-time protection provided by
    an anti-spyware application (except for Windows Defender; includes Spybot
    Tea Timer, SpySweeper Guards, AVG AS guard.exe, etc.), disable any
    third-party firewall AND enable the Windows Firewall.

    NB: You're "working without a net" now: Don't to ANYTHING else online (e.g.,
    browsing; reading email; chatting) except #4 below until your anti-virus
    application has been re-enabled! If you're running ZA Free firewall, you
    may need to uninstall it instead of disabling it.

    2. Uninstall "Security Update for Windows Internet Explorer 7 (KB944533)"
    via Add/Remove Programs (make sure Show Updates box is checked at top right)
    and reboot.

    3. Re-do #1 above.

    4. Go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and install any Critical Updates
    offered. If "Root Certificates" update is listed in the Optional Updates
    category, you might install it, too, to take full advantage of IE7's
    additional security.

    5. Reboot > Make sure everything in #1 above is enabled again and, if
    applicable, disable the Windows Firewall and enable your third-party
    firewall.
