I have the exact same problem with my browsers
Jennx, I have been having the same problems as you with my browsers. My computer is free of viruses and clean of spyware. When I turn the computer on sometime it starts immediately or after about 10 mins that page saying "page cannot be displayed" "cannot find Internet Explorer." I turn it off again and sometime it comes back normally. I am waiting to hear what advice you get for this problem as well.I am running Windows XP SP2 home edition also. I am not networked with another computer. Gearyat
It's just with my music- sound-- I hear nothing-
no sound from my computer after a certain period of short time-- just stops-- i play a video game no sound or music...what gives?? lets help each other out.
Happy, it's not wise to post your problems on an old thread as they may not get seen to.
If none of the suggestions in this thread help you, make a new discussion in the main forum, include your system specifications and full details of the problem and see if you get any responses there.
The page cannot be displayed
The article [Q316894] describes and offers troubleshooting tips in the following areas, of which there are three other parts covering other important items:
a. I get a message saying ''The page cannot be displayed''.
b. Web pages don't show pictures or play sound.
c. My browser doesn't start at the page I want.
d. Web sites don't remember me.
e. Internet Explorer crashes.
f. I get a message saying ''You are not authorized to view this page''.
g. I need to view a Web page when I can't go on line.
The Page cannot be displayed
Software issues? Yes!
I wonder why so many on the PC platform blame Virus issues for a software issue and problems?
I have a Mac. If that happened to me it would be a software problem. The Mac System has not had a virus since 1998.
Check out the software issue with a PC Guru.
There are many here to help you.
(Cowboy, You are right on!)

IE stops working
Why have two browsers working at the same time?
Conflict issue here?
Maybe the browsers are confused. Cannot decide which is in charge? Gives up and shuts down!?
Has happened to me opening with Safari and swithing to Firefox. About ten minutes sounds right for a crash.
Memory issue? Conflict issue?
I am having the similar problem. It is some kind of virus/spyware/trojen a very bad one. STOP using the computer or logging into any sites. I tried all kind of virus/spyware programs and nothing is helping. I found only one thing 'network.exe' trojen on my computer. It stopped working couple of days and still don't know how to fix it. I reinstalled norton (as I was not able to get the latest updates) but no use.
Is anyone able to fix the problem.
Has anybody tried these 2 possible fixes?
One is called "IEFix", the other is "WinsockxpFix",hope this does you all some good.
Having the same issues but with all browsers
There seems to be a major problem going around lately and no one seems to be able to fix it...
I have had this problem for several months now and run 4 computers networked together, all running Windows XP. Two are wired to the network and 1 laptop and 1 PC are wireless. The laptop, the wireless PC and 1 wired PC are working with no problems at all. Unfortunately, the 4th is a whole 'nother story.
Aside from having the browsers stop working after about 15 SECONDS (I'm jealous of those of you who get a whole 10 minutes) and everything else such as Yahoo Messenger and MSN Messenger still going fine, when I have this 4th computer hooked up to the network, none of the other computers can access the internet or network and I just get "page cannot be displayed" errors. In addition, this usually also resets my router automatically.
After about 1 month of trying to figure out what to do, I called Dell support and they said it sounded like a virus...something I hadn't thought of before or seen in various posts online. So I ran Norton Antivirus - it found nothing. Then I saw a post online about AVG Antivirus. Installed that, ran it and found the bug.
The computer worked beautifully for about 3 days BUT then went back to the same old problems again with no rhyme or reason. So I tried AVG again, it found nothing, am now trying out Computer Associates EZ Antivirus software and although it finds a few bugs that doesn't seem to help. I've also tried various spyware softwares and just about everything else I can think of and get no where.
Anyone who knows how to resolve this is a real life saver and good luck to you out there with the same issues!!!
Had the same problem but found a VERY simple fix
Just wanted to let you know that after I posted my extensive info on my own similar experience, I have found a simple and easy fix that I hope will help everyone else out a well.
I had been on several forums and sites that had suggested the following:
Go to My Network Places
View Network Connections
Then view the Properties of each connection you have and under the "Authentication" tab, make sure that the "Enable network access control using IEEE 802.1x" box is NOT checked.
I had tried this before but only did it on my LAN connection which didn't eliminate the problem. But when I also did the same on my network bridge, the problem was fixed (knock on wood).
Sometimes when new software is installed or uninstalled, it defaults back to being checked and I think this was my problem last week...
Hope this simple fix works for some other very frustrated people and good luck for all those who are still having problems!
One other thing about this problem
I have also run into lots of issues with file sharing software creating this sort of problem. The computer works great and then once a file sharing program is started, the connection drops and the server resets itself. This happens repeatedly every couple of minutes. Perhaps this is the cause for some other people's problem. I was running sharing software for months with no problem whatsoever but now it seems that anytime i have one on at all the only thing which functions properly is it, messenger services and that's about it. No internet browsers respond except for the first 5-10 seconds and then everything resets and going into the same cycle.
Just some food for thought
found some solution
I don't think there is a simple fix for this problem. I found that there was a folder created 'c:\Recycler\.system32\' None of the virus programs were able to find this folder and that's why were not able to fix the problem. It has a network.exe file running on it. I think it's some kind of Trojan which tracks all kind of things we do online. It tracks even every keys you type on u'r computer and may send all the passwords to the person who has put the bug on your computer. I am not sure just thinking that this is the case. I have killed all the appl and removed the folder. I even removed all the registory with network or something similar on it. BTW in the folder I did see some text file and it was quite helpful in debugging.
My internet is working fine but I am thinking of rebuilding the computer to get rid of all the traces of the trojan. I am sure it's working fine but just worried about it.
web browser problems
You will need to remove or block VSDATANT.SYS
You will find it with ''search file'' or in c: Windows/System32
another file that might be causing you a problem is
parvdm.sys. Make a back up before blocking or deleting.
use on-line armor to scan and block these files
