    A 404 error means the website doesnt exist that you're trying to go to :-)

    You will be getting that message, because you deleted a Java manager (as a result of a virus hoax) and you will be unable to view many web sites untill you reinstall the file you deleted

    I haven't heard of the hoax - persue this line if it's happening a lot.

    Most errors when accessing pages are from either the 400 or 500 series as listed here

    Sorry you are talking rubbish the 404 error is a page not found which could just mean a server is down at the moment.

    Excuse me!!!!?

    A 404 usually means that the PAGE is not available, not the whole site. Most sites have a "404" default message that IE overwrites. If you want to see the real message, which actually ties down to meaning something go to tools > internet options > advanced tab > and about 18 options down untick "show friendly http error messages".

    You will then see the message that the server produces which may be
    1/Funny.
    2/Informative.

    This problem seems to have rectified itself since recovering from a virus hoax that I had. Thanks for your help with this.

    Okay, to be more presice, it means that the individual page (Not site sorry..) that you're going to is not available at this time, due to a server being down, broken link, or and invalid link altogether.

    Deleting that file shouldnt affect those, rather I would think that itd make pages display incorrectly, not disapear altogether :-)

    Anybody else care to comment? I could be wrong here?!

    You will notice I did say Page Not Found but quite often when one page is not found for a site others aren't either.
