Surfing errors suddenly the last 24hrs

Suddenly in the last day everything I click on errors out about half the time. If I hit refresh most of time it loads right up but its still too often and annoying. I really didnt change anything with my pc so I just assuming this is on roadrunners end. Any thoughts?

What operating system are you using? Maybe your IP stack got corrupted or something like that. I've seen intermittent failures when there are problems with the stack, and you have to reset it to magically make all problems go away.

Post back if you need assistance resetting the stack.

start>run>(clear out naything in the box) type 'cmd'(no quotes)>hit ok button...

this opens the command line AKA DOS...

type 'sfc /scannow'(no quotes) hit enter key... let the command run... if it prompts you with 'in order for windows to run properly files must be copied to the DLL cache, please insert your microsoft windows XP CD' insert the CD... it will repair from the disc... this means you have SERIOUS OS corruption and much larger problems than browsing if you see the 'DLL cache' prompt... hopefully you won't see it and repirs will occur from the CAB files...

reboot...

then run a complete reset of all tcp/ip and socket management on the OS...

go to start>run... clear out sfc /scannow or anything in the text box... type 'cmd' (no quotes)... click ok... this will again open DOS, i mean the 'command line'

type... (no quotes)

'netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt' (enter)
'netsh winsock reset' (enter)

the first command if entered correctly gives NO feedback it simply moves to a new line...
the 'winsock' command if entered correctly... will tell you to reboot... with 'the socket manager catalogue was sucessfully reset plase restart the system'...

do so...

after reboot test browsing...

welcome...

not a bad idea to run those commands every 3 months...

save that text to a notepad file or something on your system and run them periodically...

Hi Madara,

So, what fixed the problem? Was it clearing the IP stack?
