I have just downloaded the new Netscape Navigator 8 to see what happened while browsing.
I am still unable to see any advertisements, etc., but with NN8, I get the following message:
"Alert: That domain name could not be found. Please check the name and try again."
Does this mean it's more a computer / connection settings problem rather than a browser issue?
I am running Windows XP Pro with IE6. I have just had my computer back from the store after having a 'spring-cleaning' reformat. But now two problems I have are:
The first problem:
Almost 100% of the time whilst surfing, any advertisements, andale counters (Ebay), etc, etc, show the message "The Page cannot be displayed" or a red cross icon is shown. A good example is the main page for this 'Browser' forum - the top central advert cannot be displayed or any at the right hand side. I have tried the 'Windows Update' and the advice given by the '...cannot be displayed' error message but still no good. How can I solve this?
The second problem:
Whenever I look at a streaming video file with WMP (I have WMP10), the first time round the video 'stutters' really, really badly. Once I've waited for it to run through and then play the second time around, it's ok - but this can be really annoying having to wait!!
I have tried what Microsoft said about reducing the video acceleration in the performance section but still no good. And my video card (NVIDIA) settings/drivers should be ok as it has just come from the dealer - but then again...! What can be done?
I want to try and solve the matter at home rather than take it back in again.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks for your time, Annabel.
