For some odd reason, all of a sudden, I can't connect to the internet when using IE7, and Safari. However, Firefox works fine.


IE7's Error
The page cannot be found.

This error (HTTP 400 Bad Request) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the web server, but the webpage could not be found because of a problem with the address.


Safari's Error
Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)


This happens regardless of what website I try to connect to.

If this has started occurring since the last Windows Update, it may be a problem with KB937143.
Please have a look at this thread from Micro$oft's IE7 News Group.

Try and determine if there is a problem with an extension by starting IE in No Add-Ons mode.
Then determine if IE still fails.
If not, use Tools/ Manage Add-Ons to disable all browser extensions and toolbars.
Restart IE and re-enable the browser extensions one at a time.
When you've found a problematic extension, contact the manufacturer to see if there is an update .

If that isn't the case,
Click Start / Run / type in; cmd/ and at the black command screen type in; ipconfig /flushdns
and/or try:
Start / Run / type in; regsvr32 urlmon.dll
Click Okay.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

Uninstalled that update, and the same thing happens. Opera also refuses to work.

Turned off all of IE7's add-ons, and an error still takes place.

Removing the cached DNS entries also didn't work.

:thumbsup:

Please try this fix from kellys korner:

Page Cannot be Found and/or DNS/Server Error Line #68.

This is a registry edit.
Improper changes to the registry could render your computer inoperable.
It is very important to backup the registry and know how to restore it , before making any changes.
Instructions, on how to do that, can be found here:

Backed up the registry with RegScrubXP, and tried the registry fix.

No luck once again.

See if there is anything in this Micro$oft Article that helps: Page Cannot be Displayed.

Also a good idea to contact your IP in the event the problem could be a hardware related issue.

Eh, that link wasn't too helpful because I still don't understand why Firefox works perfectly, and the other three browsers don't.

Quick question, though. After uninstalling that update, would I have to restart for any changes to take place? I didn't do that.

I can't connect when in the Help & Support menu either.

Just booted up my computer this morning, and my custom theme no longer works, even after updating the whole program.

Two error boxes popped up just as Windows loaded:

cpqset.exe - Illegal System DLL Relocation
The system DLL user32.dll was relocated in memory. The application will not run properly. The relocation occurred because the DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\SHELL32.dll occupied an address range reserved for Windows system DLLs. The vendor supplying the DLL should be contacted for a new DLL.

The other was for avgcc.exe.

Will I be saying hello to System Restore? :thumbsup:

System Restored to 2 weeks ago when I know that these programs worked, and now, they still don't work, but those DLL errors are gone, and my theme works again.

I'm going to post a HijackThis log soon.

To ask my question again, after removing that update, would I have to restart for changes to take place?

Problem solved.

A proxy server was set up, and checked off in IE somehow. I disabled it, and now everything is back to normal.
