Hey there.Recently i've bin having problems with my internet explorer 7.
I think.
Whenever i type an URL or click links it always shows "page cannot be displayed" . There is no problems with my connectivity and net.
But i'm able to get google services and yahoo, youtube, and some others , but not getting microsoft sites and whenever i search for somthing in google ,it displays the results, but all the links show this error.
My antivirus(AVG) and antispyware(Ad-Aware,Spybot-S&D,Windows Defender) programs didnt show any infections or threats.
please provide solutions for my problem.

Thank you Dennis for your reply.

The link you provided returned the same error. "Page cannot be displayed"

Is there any Proxy set or used?
Check to see if set to automatic:

In Firefox,
Go Tools/ Options/ Advanced/ click on the Network Tab, then click Settings.
Select the radio button that says Auto Detect Proxy Settings for all this Network
Click Okay

In Internet Explorer,
Go to Tools/ Internet Options/ click on the Connections tab, then click on LAN Settings.
Select Automatically Detect Settings
Click Okay twice.


You could also try WinsockXP Fix. It can cure the problem of lost connections.
Sometimes your Internet connectivity will get corrupted due to invalid or removed registry entries.

Have a look through the tutorial Can't Access Secure Sites. There should be something helpful in here.

How long have this been going on? Have you tried a system restore back to a date before this started?

It is possible that something is corrupted. Instead of a total re-install of the OS, try a
repair.
