How come my web browser keeps telling me it cannot go to the page I want it to go to?

by on June 29, 2012

Q: My computer with Windows XP home edition will go to a web site by retyping the address at the top box but not by entering it in the “run” box. I just get a window saying it cannot go there. Why?

    Try using the following command in a run box. “c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe” “http://www.google.com” (Copy above with quotes). It is possible that you’re getting an error because of the computer not knowing what your default browser is or you possibly set your default browser to something other than IExplorer.
