Q: Clicking on a Webpage Hyperlink (icon) Adds the URL to the URL Bar (two URLs now) and "Page Cannot be Displayed" Appears

Windows 7 Pro and IE 11 using certain websites (Ford's FMCDealer site)
Able to login to the main site: FMC dealer . com then when there on right side are hyperlink "buttons" and one is HVBOM (bill of materials) and the URL field dies not load the URL but APPENDS the existing URL so the previous page URL
is there AND the HVBOM URL is added to the URL field.
Why is IE 11 conjoining both URLS ?
If I use Chrome it works (the hyperlink URL loads only )

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Maybe I should have just said link in my first post.. I have a problem, maybe you can help me? When I click on a link I often only get a "chunk" sound and no other response, the desired page does not come up, nothing happens. The sound comes from the speakers and with my ear close to the speaker, sounds like, "sshOOH!". It occurs about two seconds after clicking the link. The link may be for a PDF, referral to a new page, photo to be enlarged or a small illustration where clicking on it is supposed to open a description. This does not always happen but I haven't been able to narrow it down any further. I have been led through many things to try with no results, and everything appears to be normal. Have I adequately explained what is going on? Am hoping you can solve this riddle. Thank you, Bill

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?

everytime i go to a new page in IE I am getting a "the page cannot be displayed" message before the page loads. Sometimes it's only for a few seconds, but sometimes much longer, or the page does not load at all and I have to re-open the page. The address at the top of the page is: "www.ads234.com/adview.aspx? . . ." Sometimes the problem goes away for a few minutes after running spybot. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Just wondering.....
Very frequently when I'm moving around online I will get the classic page reading "The page cannot be displayed" bla bla bla.....
Sometimes when searching for a site I know exists.
Sometimes after I have inputed some info on an online form & submit it.
Moving from one page to the next in both large & small web sites.
Not a big deal most of the time but it bugs me!
Does anybody out there have any ideas how to prevent this without lowering my protection level too far?
I'm currently using the following (w/ XP&SP2 using IE) & probably more....
LavaSoft Ad-Aware
Spybot Search & Destroy
etc. etc.

On a side note this forum is amazing.
I have only posted a few times but reading what is going on is really helpfull.
THANKS in advance !

That happens to me from time to time too. It's usually due to packet loss. Frozen pages too (where it begins to load and goes stagnant). Go back and try it again and it often works.

I've been having a problem for several months with my browser(s) and hoping someone here might be able to help.

I use both Internet Explorer and Firefox, so I've decided this isn't a browser problem. About half the time I click on links-- either from inside the browser, whether I am opening in a new window or not, from an e-mail program or chat program-- I get the "Page cannot be displayed" error. However, when I click Refresh, the page will suddenly load just fine. Usually I have to click Refresh more than once, sometimes five or six times before the page actually loads. I have no idea why it's happening and I can't seem to narrow the possibilities.

Does anyone know why this would be happening?

I'm using Windows XP, if that's of any relevance.

I apologize if anyone has already asked these questions, I'm having such issues with the internet right now I can't check to see if they have been asked. Plus everytime I come here I can't seem to find out how to just log in and post my question.
I'm running Windows XP with the newest version of IE. I have a dial-up connection, and while I am aware of just how slow this is, something has to be wrong otherwise. It hangs everywhere I go - no matter what site I visit I wait and wait and wait for it to connect. The little flag in the corner barely flaps. Most of the time I get "The Page Cannot be Displayed" - so I then refresh only to get half the page with some of the buttons not filled in, or it just boots me off the internet altogether. I've called my ISP who says they've done everything on their end they can and that the problem must be my computer. My call manager (the program that shows me who's calling) won't work, once it's connected it gives me a pop error about a socket connection error and this pop up comes up continuously - once I click ok, it comes back up over and over and over.. so much that I have to disable it.
I'm at the end of my rope for how to fix these issues. It's slower than slow. As a matter of fact I've spent the last 90 minutes trying to get to the Tech Support site and had to type this in notepad first because I was getting frustrated waiting and waiting for the site to come up.

I've been having malware issues lately, and have performed numerous scans with different programs:

MalwareBytes (removed several threats)
Avira Antivir (found nothing)
Ad-aware (bad cookies)
Safety.live.com - found items but couldn't fix it

The popups (more like new tabs, as I had the popup blocker enabled) have stopped, and it seems to be running better, but the weird thing is I can't access Windows Updates. It just says "This page cannot be displayed".

Also, the yellow shield in the system tray shows up when you first boot up, but then it goes away, as if a program/registry entry has not loaded yet when that icon first loads, but then kicks it out when it does load up.

We did some searches, and found that we should just run HiJackThis and post the log for you smart guys to analyze.

Hi, everyone. Just found this website, and it looks like it will hopefully be helpful. Here's my problem:

I am unable to access a specific website: www.edline.net. I receive an error message stating that this page cannot be displaye (as if the site doesn't exist). However, on other computers, the page appears fine.

I have Norton Internet Security installed w/parental controls (haven't gotten a chance to try turning them off; don't know if this could be the problem). I'm thinking that maybe the oversensative parental controls are blocking the site, but can anyone think of what else could be causing this problem?

I only get the message when I go to www.edline.com. Other websites work fine.

Thanks for your help, everyone!

Hey There,

Was just hoping someone knows wtf is going on here-

Some .chm files, when I try to read them with the default winXP .chm viewer, display the standard Internet Explorer "The page cannot be displayed" error page in the viewing pane. The table of contents is visible, however, just not the page data.

Now, if I copy the same .chm file to my desktop, it opens fine!

This only happens with some of my .chm files, although it is always the same ones- and they always work when I copy them to the desktop, just not when they are in the folders I keep them in.

The data is there, it just can't be accessed for some reason (if I use a .chm 'decoder' to decode the .chm files to .htm format, they work fine; however I don't want to have to mess with a hundred different .htm files just to read a book)

BTW, I have tried changing the filenames with no avail.

If anyone has solved this problem or has any suggestions I would be greatly appreciative.

My brother's computer is running Windows 98SE and is connected to my XP machine via a Linksys router. I have no problems whatsoever accessing any internet sites or anything, but his machine is pretty messed up.

He can load his home page and connect to almost any site from his favorites list, but trying to access a webpage through the address bar (no matter if http:// or www is typed beforehand) or through the Google Toolbar, the result is always a "Page Cannot Be Displayed" error. As soon as you click enter. I mean it doesn't even act like it is looking for the site, it just gives that error message right away.

I've tried emptying out the cookies and temporary internet files, but that didn't help. I reset the router settings and refreshed them but that didn't help either. I ran an Ad-Aware 6 scan and it found some browser hijack attempts along with some tracking cookies, but removing them didn't help the situation either.

I can't go on his machine to even download something like the newer version of Ad-Aware or HiJack This. I know that HiJack This can be downloaded from my machine and saved on a floppy and transferred to his computer, but I wouldn't be able to upload a log file of his machine to here (because I can't access these forums from his computer). I suppose I could save the log file to the floppy, and upload it from my computer, but I'm afraid his computer may be infected with something and I don't ... Read more

Very Slow dial-up but have tried cellular broadband which works only marginally better. The broadband in fact would be roughly the speed of what dial-up used to be on Windows 95 many years ago, I used to watch short videos then but cannot even do audio clips now unless I download them first. Some web pages and parts of many others will not load at all regardless of reloading many times. Tried Firefox, Opera and several different modems.

Computer -Win 7 64bit 4 core Compaq 4gig ram 3Ghz processor. All updates. Reinstalling Windows on a NEW HD made no difference and as a test I went on line with nothing on the HD not even the (AVG) antivirus, made zero describable difference. I ran a few checks on the computer hardware and everything was OK, have also had the telephone co. check the lines and I even Changed ISP's. Any driver update attempts has always indicated the best driver is already installed.

Two things I would really really really like to know for sure -
(A) Why will a page often fail to load regardless of how much time you give it and then display INSTANTLY after you give up and disconnect?
(B) I read of some setting a while back which was supposed to make a page attempt reload 10 times and tried it but it didn't help one byte. .... So..... is there some utility available that will DISABLE the the error message "This page can't be displayed" (and perhaps a few other assorted excuses) and reload the page AUTOMATICALLY as many times..... and f...

Okay, I'll try to explain this as best I can as I'm posting this for my husband. He is on a business trip in SE Asia (India, Korea, Taiwan) and while in India he picked up a virus. It's been cleared but he continues to have this problem with IE7...
He's able to open it and do a little reading or get his email, but after about 5 minutes he only gets the "Page Cannot Be Displayed" error and is unable to open any new tabs or windows, no links work, etc. (he then has to reboot to get it back). He's cleared files (history, cookies, temp files, etc.) using Internet Options and Explore, disabled add-ons, enabled & disabled pop-ups, etc., all to no avail. He's even tried using it in safe mode but the same problems occur. He was able to download HJT which got rid of hggff.dll (Vundo?). He said he would try to email the hjt.log file tomorrow morning (tonight EST) and I will post it, if this will help to decipher the problem. Meanwhile, if anyone has a suggestion of what else to try I (and he) would greatly appreciate it!
He is using a Dell D610 laptop running XP-Pro on a VPN (required to get his emails from work).

Hey everyone,

I have had this problem for about a week now, and I have tried everything I know of to figure out what it is, with no luck. Hopefully someone has seen a problem like this before and can help.

I am running XP, SP2. I will browse the net, and after about an hour after start-up, I will get the "Page cannot be displayed" error on all pages I visit. I had Norton installed, took it off. I had IE7 installed, reverted to IE6, no help. I reset my Winsock through the CMD box, nothing. I ran the Network diagnostic, and it said I have a Winsock catalog error, but resetting it does nothing. ALl this time, I am still connected to the internet, because downloads, uploads and whatnot continue.

I tried running the WInsock fix program, nothing. Once I restart, I am fine for an hour or so, then it happens again. I can't make an HTTP, HTTPS, or FTP connection. No firewall installed, other than WIndows Firewall. I have a DSL connection. I have cycled the Modem. I am at a loss. ANyone?

I have a HP laptop with D-links router. The wifi signal was working for a few months and all of a sudden it stopped working. I have tried to reinstall the router and checked everything i could think of but it still isn't working???? I have windows xp and i checked to make sure all my wireless setup was right but still not able to get internet unless i plug straight into the modem. Please offer any advice you can think of. My ex-boyfriend was good with computers, but he isn;'t around and i don't know what to do. Thanks!

A:I am connected to a wifi signal, but I get "page can not be displayed"

Have you tried reseting your router? If not,

1. Disconnect the router from the modem (not always necessary, but sometimes it is).

2. Find the reset button on your router (you will probably need a paper clip).

3. Hold it for 15-30 seconds, then release and let it set for a minute or less (probably when the power light stops blinking).

4. Do the same for you modem.

5. Once all of "internet," "dsl," light, or both, are on and not flickering, connect the router back to the modem.

Give it a minute or two. Once your hardware components make friends again you may or may not have to run through a basic setup for you router (it depends on the model, don't worry, most new routers are very easy to setup). If it doesn't good for you. Either way, your net should be working. Hopefully, if not, keep posting!

That should fix your wired part anyway, as for wireless you may or may not have to reconfigure something. If it still isn't working, post what model/version your router is.

This is frustrating me. Starting yesterday after dinner, the Internet has seemed slower and it sometimes takes several attempts to load a site (ex. home page, here, other sites). I have to hit Refresh a few times because I get a Page Can Not Be Displayed error message. Other times the sites load fine, but this morning for example, it took 4 tries for my home page (NASCAR.com) to load.

I've tried resetting the modem (power it down, reboot it), resetting the router, cleared the cookies and temporary internet files, and I've done virus and spyware scans and nothing turned up except a couple relatively minor cookies.

Hello all,

I have a problem with my Windows XP, and the problem is like the title says, Why when I Open(double clicking) My Computer icon on desktop, it displays searching "Flashlight" icon rather than browsing or showing my folders and drives?

Do you guys know how to fix it?


A:Solved: Open(double clicking) My Computer Opens Searching "Flashlight" Icon

Just googling and found the solution. It's because a Windows service called Windows Image Acquisition (WIA), the solution is by stop and then disable this service from control panel --> administrative tools --> services.

Hello, this is my first post here and I'm having a terrible, frustrating problem.

It all started about 6 months ago with issues trying to get to my mother's hotmail account. Every time she logged in, she would get the "Page cannot be displayed" message. I deleted all the cookies and cleared the temporary internet files and still no change. I ran all sorts of virus scanners (McAlfee, Norton Antivirus, Ad-Aware, Trojan Hunter, Spyware Blaster, CC-Cleaner) and still no results.

So, we just stopped using Hotmail and switched to Yahoo! Mail. Everything was alright until about a week ago when Yahoo! got the same message: "This Page Cannot Be Displayed". Oooh-kay. Now the whole family is screwed.

It's spread to much more than just E-Mail. I can't search shopping websites (Ex: Target.com, EBay), I can't apply for jobs online (Borders.com, Monster.com), and anything involving a log-in sequence is pretty much a "Page that cannot be displayed".

I'm at my wits end and I could really appreciate any help. Thank you for reading.

A:Numerous "Page Cannot Be Displayed" messages... please help?

Download and install Firefox and see what happens.

Firefox link assuming you can get to it?

If you have Norton Internet Security turn on the Windows firewall and turn off the Norton firewall. I am assuming you have XP SP2?

I'm using IE6 with WindowsXP. I frequently have a problem using the 'back' button. Instead of going back, I get the 'page cannot be displayed' message and sometimes even 'refresh' doesn't work. For example, amazon.com's site tells me I have a bug in my browser. What's puzzling is that it also tells me I'm using Mozilla - which I'm not. Does anyone know how I can fix this? I am including the results from my scan at Hijackthis. Thank you.

it maybe a firewall blocking
What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past/
Any trial ware - like Norton, kaspersky or Mcafee which are often pre-installed on PCs
Or any other free security suites like zonealarm, AVG , Webroot etc

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

If you cannot access the internet with this PC
You will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

Problems like this I can normally resolve 90% of the time but occasionally one beats me which is when I contact you guys.
So far I have run Spybot 1.4. Ad-aware SE 1.06, Norton Antivirus, Ewido security suite 3.5, CWShredder, Microsoft Anti-spyware, Hijackthis, Winsockfix and lspfix and still cannot get on the net. All programs were updated before running.
Most programs found nothing or very little, anything found was removed.
Results of the Hijackthis log are as below although it doesn't look too bad to me.
Anyone any suggestions what to try next?

A:Usual "This page cannot be displayed" problem

Hi and Welcome to TSF

You got some worms in the system...

Before attacking an adware/spyware problem with hijackthis make sure you have already run the following tools. Download and update the databases on each program before running. Ad-Aware? SE Personal Edition
*Note* For Ad-AwareSE also install the VX2 Addon Cleaner To run this tool once Adaware is updated click on Add-ons in the lefthand column. Select VX2 Cleaner V2.0 and click Run Tool. Click "OK" , then, if something is found, click "Clean" as in the directions given. Click "Close", and exit Ad-Aware.
Spybot Search & Destroy

Also make sure you are using the the latest version (1.99.1) of HijackThis and it's installed in it's own folder on the root drive. (C:\HJT)

Download and install CleanUp! but do not run it yet.

*WARNING* Cleanup deletes EVERYTHING out of temp/temporary folders and does not make backups.

Please go to at least two of these sites and run an online Virus Scan.
Be sure to have the AutoFix box(s) checked.


Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that Show hidden files a... Read more

One of my stored 'favourites' web sites has become unavailable. Behaviour until tonight was:
"page cannot be displayed" was first displayed,
then an F5 refresh would link to various porn sites.
Don't seem to be getting the link to any unwanted sites any more, but can't get to the desired web site either (still getting page cannot be displayed error).
Only happens for the one web page. All others still function OK.
Have scanned with Norton Symantec and AVG and nothing was found.
Attached is the output from HijackThis.
Any ideas?

A:"page cannot be displayed" for valid web site

Ok.I spot the problem..

Please download FixWareout from one of these sites:

Save it to your desktop and run it. Click Next, then Install, make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish.
The fix will begin; follow the prompts.
You will be asked to reboot your computer; please do so.
Your system may take longer than usual to load; this is normal.
Once the desktop loads Save the text that will open (report.txt) to your desktop.

Should you have problems connecting to the internet after the fix, follow these instrutions.

Please go to Start -> Control Panel Network Connections. Rightclick on your default connection (usually Local Area Connection or Dial-up Connection if you are using Dial-up) and leftclick on Properties. Doubleclick on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item and select the button that says "Obtain DNS servers automatically". Click OK twice, and restart your computer.

In your next reply, please include a fresh Hijackthis log and report.txt. Thanks

I need help. Someone installed SpyBot 1.4 on my advice. Now they can not access the internet. They said they received an error when they attempted their first scan and it locked up the PC. Now, if you go back and try the Recovery, you get a Registry recovery error.

They are connected to the internet via USB DSL modem/router. They are receiving a private IP address and Gateway from the modem and can ping the modem. However, nothing past the modem can be pinged.

Just to double-check, I had them connect via dial-up with the same results.

They are running W98SE.

Any suggestions?

I go to a court site, click on a link and a new window pops up. It is supposed to display a PDF but IE gives this messsage:
?This page can?t be displayed.? It mentions TLS and SSL should be enabled.

I have them ALL enabled.
I set them to default values.
?Fix connection problems? results in ?Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem.?

Chrome and Safari work just fine displaying the PDF correctly.

I set everything back to default values. No joy.
I?ve ?repaired? IE 10. No joy
I re-installed IE 10. No joy.

What?s a good next step to diagnose this?

A:IE 10 says "This page canít be displayed" Chrome, Safari can.

Government site are usually the most out of date site on the net,
Press the F12 key and verify Browser mode and Document mode.
On such a site using Browser mode with ie8 would most likely cure the issue or switching in or out of Comp-view,
But lets first switch to Software rendering/ Alt+TO or Gear symbol on the top right and Internet options,
Advanced section/ Check the top box-Use software rendering..../Apply and Okay.
After that make sure Adobe Reader XI is Enabled/ Use Alt+TA or Gear symbol/ Manage add-ons.
Make sure Active x filtering is not getting in the way/ Alt+T or Gear symbol/ Safety/ Uncheck it.

I have been getting "page can not be displayed errors" for weeks. I have done everything I can think of to fix this. I admit that isn't much due to lack of knowledge... If the page does load it will freeze and then I get a pop-up along the bottom of the page that says "page not responding due to a long running script". I am really frustrated. Almost to the point of tossing this thing out a window somewhere . I just can't afford to do that! I am running Win 7 and IE11. I have tried to revert back to earlier versions of IE but updates just loads IE11 again! I have MalWare Bytes and Super antispyware and from time to time they do find malware. Win Essentials finds nothing... I have never run Spybots on this laptop because I wouldn't know what to delete. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The ASUS K54C laptop supports up to 8 GB of RAM, so I'm surprised you're running Windows 7 64-bit in it with only 2 GB of RAM.

You really need to add another 2 GB or max it out with 8 GB.


We don't know how you use that laptop and what you have installed in it, so there could be any number of reasons for the issue with Internet Explorer 11.

Have you tried a different browser, such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome?
