The comment is usually accompanied by the message that: "The resource you are looking for may have been removed, had its name changed or is temporarily unavailable."

The server may be down, work being carried out or just a temporary blip.

Usually refreshing or trying again later will bring the page up.

It's something that happens on a regular basis on a vast number of sites.

it ususally means that the page is not there

I've just been to the ntlworld site and had a 'click around' and everything seems to be okay.

If you continue to have problems downloading the NTL page, try Proxomitron - it's available in the downloads section.

I had the same problem with the PCA pages a while back and Proxomitron cured it instantly, plus stopping popups and ads, which it is geared to do.

But, if you install it, make sure you follow the instructions implicitly...:-)

Hi everyone,i have returned from my holidays and will try some of your suggestions.
Just to refresh,when i call up NTLworld homepage,the NTLworld homepage appears but is approx 4 weeks out of date.
Also my PCADVISOR threads are not updating on my PC at home where my problem is,concequently,i am posting from my PC at work.
I,ll have a look at this Proxomitron and see if this will help.
Thanks for any more ideas.

Tools menu, Internet Options, Settings (in the middle right of the page) Check its set to Check For Newer Versions Of Stored Pages - Every Visit.

Basically it showing you old pages stored on the your PC.

To force it to load new pages hit F5 once the page has loaded to reload a fresh one.

Changing the above setting will help by automatically doing this every time you go to a page.
