Google Chrome *&?#

:mad:

For some months now I have been using Google Chrome as my internet browser and find it to be most unreliable and frustrating, to say the least. I keep on getting a message "webpage unavailable"

 

Does any Bobber have advice as to any alternative that I can download or another means of sorting out this problem? I recall some four weeks ago I was told to remove the program and reload it - this doesn't make any sense to me

 

Your help will be sincerely appreciated

 

Regards

Have you tried Mozilla Firefox? Very seldom do I encounter any problems with it. If you don't have it I would suggest downloading it & trying it out.

 

Try this link for your problem as well:

 

"This webpage is not available" (Network errors 2, 101, 102, 104, and 105) - Google Chrome Help

 

Many thanks Samantha - I will give it a try. This is the result of the link that you so kindly attached (I get this ALL the time)

 

Regards

[h=1]This webpage is not available[/h]Google Chrome could not load the webpage because support.google.com took too long to respond. The website may be down, or you may be experiencing issues with your Internet connection.

[h=2]Here are some suggestions:[/h]

  • Reload this webpage later.
  • Check your Internet connection. Restart any router, modem, or other network devices you may be using.
  • Add Google Chrome as a permitted program in your firewall's or antivirus software's settings. If it is already a permitted program, try deleting it from the list of permitted programs and adding it again.
  • If you use a proxy server, check your proxy settings or contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working. If you don't believe you should be using a proxy server, adjust your proxy settings: Go to the wrench menu > Settings > Show advanced settings... > Change proxy settings... > LAN Settings and deselect the "Use a proxy server for your LAN" checkbox.

Error 7 (net::ERR_TIMED_OUT): The operation timed out.

Hi Kit

 

I don't think the problem is with Chrome itself.

I use both Chrome and Firefox and don't have problems with either.

The only time I have problems is when I have too many tabs open at once, I have a habit of getting carried away sometimes.

 

Have you tried clearing your cache on Chrome? You need to do this regularly.

 

You do it as follows:

 

Open Chrome

Look for the little spanner icon on the right hand side of the window.

Click on Settings.

Click on History - the options shown on the left.

Click on clear all browsing data.

 

This should sort the problem out for you.

This looks more like a service provider issue to me. From the error messages above, it appears that your browser is unable to resolve DNS and get to any website.

 

If you are on Windows, open a command line (Windows-Key + R or "Run" from the start menu) and then type in CMD.EXE.

 

From there, type in (and post the results): ping bidorbuy.co.za
