    This has been happening for several months now and I cannot figure out why. I will be browsing along and I'll find a story I find interesting on the treocentral home page so I click on it and I get a "internet explorer cannot display this page" error. So I think ok, maybe its just a broken link or the site is down or something but then when I try to go to any other website, I get the same error. Basically, I cannot pull up any web pages no matter what, but Outlook and its connection to my hosted Exchange Server seem just fine, can send/receive email no problem. The only thing that fixes it is a reboot of the PC. I've tried clearing my cookies/temp files, tried Firefox (happens in that browser too), tried another PC and it killed the web browsing abilities on it too until I rebooted it. I am certain I do not have any viruses/spyware, running Symnantec AV and Norton Firewall and both are up to date. Using a Dell Latitude D620 and Latitude D830, both running XP Pro SP3 with IE7 with the latest updates. Tried it with both a Verizon Fios internet connection as well as my work internet connection, same result on both. The most recent treocentral story to kill my web browsing connection is this one:

    That's very VERY strange! I can tell you (or take a look at the source code for the page) that there's nothing wacky in the HTML. Have you experienced this at any other sites? Has anybody else experienced this here?!

    Fortunately, this is the only website that I've come across this issue. I agree, very weird!

    Wow, I have to say I'm stumped... Are you using ad-blocking software? That's caused problems on our forums before, but never the frontpage...

    I've had this problem a few times recently on the mobile site homepage and the news page. clearing the cache helps sometimes. I get error url not found. Please help us.

    I just remembered that it also occasionally happens on certain stories over at cnet.com. So this site and cnet are the only two where I see this behavior (though more frequently on TC). I did recently start to use some ad-blocking software but the problem has was happening long before I installed it. I just disabled it though and the problem still exists.

    hunh -- well on our end we're not seeing any oddities -- it could be any number of issues: proxies come to mind, but since it's happening at both work and home that seems doubtful. Unfortunately, I don't know if I can help much as the issue doesn't appear to be fully on our end.
