    I can not find the discussion group for Internet Explorer only so am posting
    the problem to this discussion group. The problem that I am having is when I
    open up the computer for the past two weeks a page comes up with the
    following message: "Internet Explorer can not display this page". I can
    click the page off and continue to work on the computer. This is rather
    annoying to have it occur every time I open up the computer. I have Internet
    Explorer 8. Is there any way I can correct this problem or tell me why this
    is happening. It has never happened before until the past two weeks. Would
    appreciate any suggestions,etc.

    Assuming you installed KB978207 two weeks ago, just before the problem
    started...

    Error message after you install a Windows Internet Explorer update from
    Windows Update or from Microsoft Update: "Webpage cannot be displayed":
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942818

    If tweaking your third-party firewall's settings don't help, try the
    following:

    1. Disable your anti-virus application, all Norton Add-ons (if any), any
    real-time protection provided by an anti-spyware application (except for
    Windows Defender; includes Spybot Tea Timer, SpySweeper Guards, Ad-Aware
    Ad-Watch & Guard, etc.), disable any third-party firewall AND THEN enable
    the Windows Firewall.

    NB: You're "working without a net" now: Don't to ANYTHING else online (e.g.,
    browsing; reading email; chatting) except #4 below until your anti-virus
    application has been re-enabled! If you're running ZA Free firewall, you
    may need to uninstall it instead of disabling it.

    2. Uninstall "Security Update for Windows Internet Explorer 8 (KB978207)"
    via Add/Remove Programs (make sure Show Updates box is checked at top right)
    and reboot.

    3. Re-do #1 above.

    4. WinXP: Go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com | Select CUSTOM and scan
    | Install any Critical Security Updates offered (e.g., KB978207). If a Root
    Certificates update is listed in the Optional Software updates category on
    the left-hand side of the scan results window, install it to take full
    advantage of IE's enhanced security.

    5. Reboot & make sure everything in #1 above is enabled again and, if
    applicable, disable the Windows Firewall and enable (or reinstall) your
    third-party firewall.
