Oops! This link appears to be broken!

"Oops! This link appears broken.DNS error occurred. Server cannot be found."This comes up on almost everything I try to go to now! I have no clue what to do, at times refreshing works, sometimes shutting down and restarting works but for the most part is doesn't. In particular a site,, refuses to load. This constant "Oops, this link appears broken or cannot be found" is driving me insane. Is there anything that can be done?I'd appreciate all the help I can get!My running system:HP LaptopLocal Dial-up Connectionand Windows 7 of courseIf anyone has any idea why this error report shows up, please tell me, and if you know how to fix it, I'd really appreciate it!

It could be a number of reasons, but typically, it sounds like your DNS settings are messed up.

have you installed any software that "will help you speed up your browsing" ?

Here is a link to a tiny executable that allows you to choose from a number of fixes: SF IE Restorator - Troubleshooting General Issues with IE . Another thing that sometimes works is to reset (power off/on) your router and switch.

@johngalt - There is/was a program on the desktop that says "Speed up your computer!" but I have no clue where it's installed or how to uninstall it.--@roncerr - Well I don't have a router, but I tried the other thing. I'll try it again but so far no luck, it's still not coorperating with me.
