I tried opening in internet explorer and in firefox but I can't get into certain sites: the error message reads: Internet Explorer can't show webpage. Sometimes it showed an error saying the the DNS cache couldn't read the name or something to this effect. Sometimes it allowed me to enter the site but I couldn't move from the site's home page to other pages without getting those error messages. I checked the advanced options on the tools menu of internet Explorer and made sure the security SSL and TLS settings were checked. It got me into the site but when I later logged off and tried going there again, same errors. I tried turning off the safe search feature on Google to see if that would do anything, and again, I got in, but then later, I couldn't again. Same error messages. I tried accessing the site not from the URL but from doing a search and clicking from the search results, but again, it had the same error message:Can't open webpage. Most probable causes: You're not connected to the internet, There is a problem with the website, It is possible that the address wasn't spelled correctly. You can try to diagnose the connection. (Which I did and it found no problem). Your problem could be related to a series of problems such as: you've lost connection to the internet (no), The website is temporarily unavailable, it can't access the DNS. The DNS doesn't have a entrance on list for the domain of the website
I tried to restore my computer to an earlier time but it won't go. The xp error message states that it couldn't complete the restoration.
I scanned for viruses, adware, spyware, etc. Nothing.
I used another computer, a laptop and the same thing happened, but this showed an error message that said in the titlebar window of Internet Explorer:
