Web pages don't fully load before error message

  1. When I am on the internet and just looking at regular sites like yahoo or local news sites using IE I get strange error messages like:

    "Sorry, we couldn't find http://%24pixelhost/serve/fb/pdc%3FuatFilter%3Dtrue"

    I get different messages but it always starts Sorry, we couldn't find http://......

    The page is mostly loaded then I get the message and a list of suggested sites. Its not always pixelhost but this is the most recent error I recieved. It almost seems to be random because I can not make it happen but it happens enough to be annoying.

    Any suggestions would be great.

    This looks like DNS redirection.

    The concept is whenever a webserver reports Error 404 (page not found), many ISPs
    will intercept the Error 404 and reproduce what they think is a user friendly help reply
    which clearly it AINT!

    Suggest you change the DNS settings in your router or manually on the PC itself
    to as the first DNS entry - - this is the google DNS
    and a request for will reply
    Server not found
    Firefox can't find the server at
    For page content like scripts and graphics, the missing webresource is just ignored
