Search Engine

  1. Hello Everyone,

    My system appears to work fine in most every way except one. I can go to
    URL file and navigate around the site, but when I enter a
    search term and click their Go Fetch! button I can only get,

    The page cannot be displayed

    I get the same when trying to search their Yellow pages and White pages.
    I can search all other search engines, but I like their hits better. I go to
    my secondary backup Windows 95 system and works fine.

    Can anyone think of any reason this might be happening to this one
    particular site all of a sudden ? It used to work. Can/Would anyone Please
    suggest some solutions that might solve the problem ?

    All input is Greatly Appreciated,

    Wayne R. Russ

    Perhaps your firewall is blocking you, on some search engines they need to
    put cookies on your computer to function properly.

    NBC News

    Dogpile did not work, but Google did work. :)

  5. Thank You for the suggestion LJ, but I disabled my Firewall and tried
    Dogpile and it still failed. Such is the life with computers. :-|
