Randomly when Im browsing on firefox a page will not load, instead a page saying server not found. I also checked in IE7 and this page will randomly appear. Both browsers say the same thing as to what the problem might be. Sometimes I might have to refresh up to 6-7-8 times before the site will be found. This happens about every hour to a page give you a rough scale of occurrence. When this page comes up saying server not found I tested what happens when I click my homepage, it also said server not found.

Could someone please help me out, please. This is really annoying me know lol.

Thanks for reading, help greatly appreciated. Cheers

Try disabling your Firewall temporarily and see if you still get the same messages when loading a new page.

If the pages load properly,you should uninstall your present firewall and install another firewall (i.e.Sygate,Comodo) from This post called "Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps."

A lot of issues could be at hand here besides the firewall.

Please check or do the following :

* Clean your Cache and Cookies in IE:

* Close all instances of Outlook Express and Internet Explorer
* Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > General tab
* Under Browsing History, click "Delete".
* Click "Delete Files", "Delete cookies" and "Delete history"
* Click Close below.

* Clean your Cache and Cookies in Firefox (In case you also have Firefox installed):

* Go to Tools > Options.
* Click Privacy in the menu..
* Click the Clear now button below.. A new window will popup what to clear.
* Select all and click the Clear button again.
* Click OK to close the Options window

* Clean other Temporary files + Recycle bin

* Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click ok.
* Let it scan your system for files to remove.
* Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
* Press OK to remove them.

Check the version of Java software you have. Latest version is 6.

AS a as firewalls is concerned I run Zone Alarm free and it is excellent in cojunction with FF and IE 6(!!)
