Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

My computer is almost 1 yr old. Cyberpower built my gaming computer and sent me an upgrade coupon which I used to upgrade from Vista to Window7.Computer specs: Vista/Window7Home Premium 64-bit,AMD Phenom II QUAD 955 3.2 GHZ,1TB SATA HD SATA II 3.0 GB 7200RPM HD,8 GB DDR3 PC3 PC1333,ASUS MB,800W PS,RADEON 4850 PCI-E 16X 1GB VC.Computer ran great until I downloaded Window 7 upgrade now I frequently get the response: Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage- and I have to troubleshoot to load web pages- some eventually load , some never load completely.I have high speed internet service which ran lightning fast until I downloaded Window 7 - should I uninstall and go back to Vista or try to re-install again. I'm a novice at this and would welcome some help.....thx....frustrated guy !

Now what did you do AFTER you installed this OS?

Tell us about the drivers for motherboard, audio, video, ethernet and more. These are not automatic.

DNS problems?

This error occurs when IE can't reach the web server, e.g. it can't map the name into an address, or can't get packets through the network to the server. The fact that "some eventually load" suggests that this isn't a firewall problem since that should be consistent, but it might be a change to a less reliable DNS server (used to map the name into an address). Look at Help for the error "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" for further troubleshooting tips.
