Why is it that when i am surfing the net i get half a page or more of the site i wish to see and the rest of the page comes up with the caption SORRY THIS PAGE IS NOT AVAILABLE?
This even happened when i logged on to the P.C. ADVISOR site.

Is it literally half a page or certain areas of the page - where adverts might be, for example?

Can you give us some sites that you experience problems with? We can see if we get the same problem and give you some feedback :)

Yes it is where the adverts are.

Assuming that you are not running ad-blocking software:

Look for the file

C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\HOSTS

and rename it to HOSTS.OLD

Restart your PC and try again. Still problems?

(That's for XP or W2K, for Windows 98 it would be

C:\windows\HOSTS)
