Having problems with my Browser i think :? , keep getting "PAGE CANNOT BE DISPLAYED", forums etc are working ok i get it when trying to sign in to E-bay and most recently on CRC's site, when i click on "checkout" to pay for items i get the page connot be displayed.

I tried going into the internet settings and set the LAN to auto detect etc but no joy, using Windows XP, provider is AOL, could i download another Browser ?

Not that great with these new fangled computer thingy's, they'll never catch on if you ask me :lol:

Try Firefox instead of internet explorer (I assume that's what you're using)

http://www.mozilla-europe.org/en/firefox/

It could just be AOL being shite, but Firefox is much better then IE anyway.

I like safari, very simple and fast, visually more appealing than firefox. And a wonderful spell check on everything you type.

Firefox has a built in spell checker too ;)

You can alter the appearance of Firefox with extensions & FF3 is pretty damn fast!
