Hi all. Congratulations on being the first site that google will come up with when searching for "Windows Vista forum."

So, I've been trying to surf the web with IE 7, and having quite a few difficulties. In fact, about 75% of the sites I try to visit come back with a "cannot display page" error. I tried every download site I could think of to find a copy of Firefox, and nothing was working. Then I downloaded it, and Opera, on my XP machine, and transferred it to my Vista machine. Both browsers installed just fine, but I'm still having the same problem. Is it that the sites are simply incompatible with Vista, or am I the only one having this issue?

Exactly the same problem for me, pages wont load and those that do are often incomplete, tried IE7,Firefox and Opera with same results. I've checked Lan and network settings, I'm getting good pings and minimal packet loss with full speed downloads ! It's baffling me ? :huh:

Thats strange as I am not having any problems whatsoever. In internet options of IE 7 i did disable the detection of proxy settings. Though this really shoudl not cause any problems, this is a beta so may be something to look into
