Hi, I have been trying to access a website (which i have under my favourite links) but cant access it. When i try i get a page up saying ' 404 not found'. It seems that its only this website i cant access. I have run super antispyware and malwarebytes anti malware and were no problems(and a full scan with kaspersky) Does anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it? Thanks

Hi mattem, please provide a link to the web site so we can try it. It may be temporarily out of service or actually gone.

Sorry, it must have been teh website as i can acces it now. I thought it was my computer as i googled a website that apparently checks to see if the website was online and it said it was (during the period i couldnt access it). Also, i had googled what '404 not found' meant and most responses seemed to say/imply it was a problem with the client rather than teh servers/sites. All good now :yeah: thanks for the reply.

Thanks for the reply Satsensort, and welcome to What the Tech. However, this topic is almost 3 months old, so a little stale to be adding additional information. I would hope the original poster would have solved their problem by now, and their topic reply email notifications automatically expire after two weeks with no reply. 404 is a very generic error code, which in layman's terms means that nobody's home. Or, more technically, your computer sent a request, but the server where the site is hosted couldn't find what was requested.
