    The page cannot be displayed
    when clicking on some url links on a certain web page
    the page will not open, right click and open in new window
    I get the 'The page cannot be displayed' error. I then fired up the laptop
    and went to the same web site and did not have a problem. Could there
    be something wrong with my desktop settings on IE. I am running winxp
    and IE version 6.

    Have done all house keeping etc... but still unable to view some pages. Also
    found IE says detecting proxy settings while looking for web site and fails
    display some gif' images I have created on my web site, again OK on laptop.

    Laptop displays a banner add which pops up when linking to site, desktop
    fails to
    show this. I am sure there is something wrong with my desktop IE.

    Please help

    Tools / Internet Options / Connections / Settings.
    Uncheck 'Automatically detect settings', and 'Use automatic
    configurations script'. Also uncheck proxy, if you don't use one.
