I am having this same issue, I've been looking in other threads but so far no one has been able to answer this question let alone resolve it.  It would be really nice if a Google Employee would look at threads with this issue and do something to help us instead of spending so much time dealing with people that have Error 4, who have countless threads with a solution.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Google Chrome Guide1 11/25/08 4:04 PM
Hey guys,

Thanks for reporting this. This error is usually reported when Google Chrome did everything it was required to do to get access to the network and it failed. There are a number of causes for this problem that are external to Google Chrome.  If you are seeing this error you should investigate the following:

1.  Do you have an Anti-Virus software package that blocks applications from reaching the network?
Vista's built in firewall and most modern firewall/virus software does this for you.  Unfortunately, many of them don't recognize Google Chrome yet so you need to manually allow the exception.  Some users have noticed that to get the proper behavior from their virus software they had to uninstall the browser, remove the rule in the virus software, and then reinstall and allow network access the first time they launch the browser.

2.  Do you have a hardware firewall that needs to be configured?
Some users have routers or proxy servers that need to be configured to allow Google Chrome to access the network.

3.  Is your machine infected with malware? 
This is what we've observed to be the most common culprit of Error 2 (net::ERR_FAILED). There are some malware infestations that try to redirect your browser to a site they control.  These infestations don't recognize Google Chrome so they do the wrong thing.  In other words, the malware is trying to hijack Google Chrome but fails and the result is Google Chrome thinking it can't get to the network.

Cheers,
Shawn
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available wafflessticktogether 11/25/08 4:15 PM
Thanks Shawn for getting back to us.  My situation is number three on the above mentioned list, and this malware messed a lot of stuff up, I found that it wouldn't let Chrome browse unless it was a site like Bank of America (which I'm guessing is because of the sensitive log in information that is required, and it is trying to get it), but even with IE if I clicked on a hyper link to lets just say www.google.com it would go to some other website, I would actually have to copy and past the link into the address bar for it to actually go where I wanted it too.  In the end I spent all last night backing up my files and programs that weren't affected, formated my hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP Pro, and I have spent all day today doing all the windows updates and bring back all my files from backup.  Needless to say this fixed the problem but it was an extreme measure and I'm sure there is some kind of fix to the issue (even though it may be external to Chrome) that Google may be able to help with or some user that is much smarter then I.  I hope you all figure a better way of fixing this so you don't have to do what I spent the last 48 hours doing :-D
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available N8-bit 1/26/09 1:36 PM
That's not good. I have the same problem wafflessticktogether has. Although the spyware won't let Chrome browse anything, and mine also redirected me to some spyware site when I used Firefox. I've gotten rid of (or at least I think I did) the spyware. It was MS antispyware 2009 and Spyware Protection 2009 to be exact
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available dirkl 3/28/09 7:39 AM
I had the same problem and it drove me crazy - "Webpage is not available" in Chrome, apparently without even an attempt to connect, but everything fine in Firefox 3 and IE7.  After going through tips on this thread and others, I found the solution (for my computer, at least) through trial and error: CA Antivirus Suite's "Parental Controls" Component, even though I had the Parental Controls set not to block anything at all.  I found that if I first logged in to Parental Controls as Administrator, Chrome worked just fine.  But every time I restarted the computer, Parental Controls reverted to "Default" user, and Chrome had the same problem--with just about every website--until I manually switched Parental Controls to Administrator.  So I just uninstalled Parental Controls, because I don't use it anyway, and now Chrome works fine, no problems at all.  I didn't have to uninstall any other antivirus component, just Parental Controls.  So this is pretty much Shawn's answer #1 above, except that my firewall was set to allow Chrome, so I didn't suspect Parental Controls until I began trying things out randomly.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available MikeWarner 4/18/09 1:52 AM
I have this problem, but only randomly.  Every now and then I'll click on a click and I'll get this error.  Click refresh and it is fine.  It is a major problem when the page that doesn't load had a form submitted (i.e. online payments).
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available KenW 4/22/09 6:07 AM
I also have this problem. It started in the middle of the afternoon two days ago (4/20/09). I have run multiple malware scanners, cleaned the cookies, made sure there are no proxy issues, etc. I still get the error. All web pages will open in firefox and IE. Very frustrating.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available KenW 4/22/09 6:10 AM
As an added check, I disabled my firewall and anti-virus. No effect. It won't even open sites internal to my home network including the router that the machine is directly connected to.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Sentinel 4/22/09 11:42 AM
This problem started for me 2 days ago as well.
I've run a full virus scan, and spyware scan and come up with nothing.
I just tried a reinstall of Chrome, and it still has the same problem.
I've also cleared all my cookies.
No page is working, and I can't stand being back using IE. It's far too clunky.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available pmsulli 4/22/09 11:49 AM
I feel like an idiot posting this but for what it is worth I figured out my problem with Google... It was a firewall thing my McAfee firewall was blocking this application. Thanks for all your help.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available jsp737 4/22/09 12:20 PM
I am having the same problem and mine started two days ago as well.  Scans return no bugs.  Was there an update to Chrome two days ago?
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Sentinel 4/23/09 5:56 AM
My problem turned out to be windows firewall blocking Chrome too. When I turned it off pages loaded fine.
I wonder what happened that caused my firewall to suddenly start blocking Chrome?
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available nonny 4/23/09 7:32 AM
I have the same thing - Norton, SpyBot, and AdAware find nothing wrong. Noticed it 3 days ago - something keeps my hard drive chattering. Did Google make a change?  Sorry to lose Chrome - really liked the speed of it.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available BrentG 5/27/09 3:30 PM
This is a very frustrating problem, and I can confirm, it happened to me immediately after upgrading to Chrome 2.0.

To Shawn:

1.  Do you have an Anti-Virus software package that blocks applications from reaching the network?
Yes (Kaspersky 8.0), but I have it configured correctly, plus, even turning it competely off does not solve the problem.

2.  Do you have a hardware firewall that needs to be configured?
Kaspersky has a firewall and I have it configured correctly. Turning it off completely does not solve problem either. I also checked Window Firewall and it is off. However, perhaps you are referring to another type of hardware-based firewall. I don't have anything like that, unless my D-Link router has one built in. But I have never touched that nor never had a problem with it blocking anything.

3.  Is your machine infected with malware?  
No, I checked that also (with more than one malware app.)

I have spent a ridiculous amount of time troubleshooting this problem. I accept the fact that there is probably a setting on my computer that will allow Chrome to work, but I am also positive the upgrading to 2.0 started the problem. So, in my mind, Google needs to help here...aggressively, because Chrome is unuseable right now.

I'm open to any and all solutions and suggestions. I should also add that I have never had a problem like this with previous versions of Chrome, which I have been using now for months.

Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available MyChrome 7/5/09 4:53 PM
I know lots are being plagued by this predicament of "Error 2 (net::ERR_FAILED): Unknown error." And here is the solution I achieved in Vista Firewall. When adding a rule, Vista typically uses variables in its file path, such that the following being Chrome's rule path:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe

But when I convert the file path to be more "direct" like:

C:\Users\MYUSERNAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe

It works!

P.S. I am sure other OS users facing the same problem will find the above solution competent.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available The Soup Thief 7/17/09 1:27 AM
Same problem as described above
Haven't time to go searching about right now to fix this, but as others have commented - it's made Chrome unusable since I upgraded to latest version - back to Firefox unfortunately til i get a spare evening to start messing with it
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available asanka 8/5/09 4:26 AM
Chrome 2 worked fine. I uninstalled chrome 2 and installed chrome 3 today. Then strated getting the same message regardless of the URL that I am trying to enter. Below is the error message. I tried again uninstalling and reinstalling it. But no luck. Since there seems to be no fix, I will revert back to Firefox. (Running XP Sp3, No Firewalls, Proxy settings are fine)

Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available sexytool22 8/15/09 7:54 PM
pmsulli update to IE 7 or 8 and that should fix your Chrome issues.
I haven't had a chance to have an in-depth look at things, but it sounds like Chrome is heavily reliant on IE settings & resources to work properly.
If you update IE to 7 or 8 you should be resetting all of those settings to default and putting more/new resources in for chrome to work off.

In the mean time, try firefox.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available sexytool22 8/15/09 7:59 PM
"So this is pretty much Shawn's answer #1 above, except that my firewall was set to allow Chrome, so I didn't suspect Parental Controls until I began trying things out randomly. "

This is another common issue. To ensure Windows Firewall is not the issue, please click on the start menu. Then click run (Or keyboard windows key and R at the same time) type services.msc into the popup box and click ok.
In the new window find "Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)". Right click it and select stop.
Launch Chrome and see if the problem is resolved.
If it is, double click on it to open it's properties page and set it's "Startup Type" to disabled from the large drop down box.
Repeat the above steps for your firewall
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available windsurferbruce 8/28/09 6:42 AM
I'm not a sophisticated user and find these fixes too complicated.  I'll wait for google to fix and go back to IE and Firefox until that happens.  I do appreciate all the info.  It makes me realize it is a google issue and not mine.  Thanks to all
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available windsurferbruce 8/28/09 6:48 AM
Hi- it wasn't too complicated- I took PurePhoenix' advice to Stop the Windows firewall.  It only took 30 seconds and it worked!!!  Thank you, PurePhoenix.   Bruce

I too had the same problem, debugging in my PC showed me a process rlvknlg.exe (Relevance Knowledge spyware/ad-ware) was meddling with chrome. Got rid of this process and now chrome works fine. See if you have this process running (win task manager). Get rid of it somehow ( killing it will create another clone process ! headche to remove ) . There is also an uninstall option from relevance knowledge (strange ad-wares come with uninstall). This must get rid of the problem for some

Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available schiok 11/30/09 9:13 PM
I was having the same problem of "The webpage is not available" and indeed I was very frustrating. The webpage would start showing up once I clicked the "refresh" a few times.

Came across this comment from another post and the good Samaritan suggested to look at DNS. The article can be found here:  http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/print/9019951/Hack_DNS_for_lightning_fast_Web_browsing?taxonomyName=Networking+and+Internet&taxonomyId=16\

My problem solved within 5 minutes and it does not cost me a cent. Hope this article will help others too!
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available DaremoS 12/1/09 12:29 PM
I've spent lot of days trying to solve this... finally in my case the problem was solved by deactivating watchdog of Free AVG 9.
Unfortunately this is main module of Free AVG. Then I will have to move to another antivirus... not tested yet
BTW this affect also other browsers, tested Firefox and Safari and also affect IE8 but less.

Sorry Microsoft I dont care how horrible chrome gets.  I wont use IE and I sure as hell wont use BING.

Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available moefuzz 12/8/09 9:19 AM
Chrome allows all manor of cookies.

You currently have little choice.

You either accept all manor of cookies, most of which are harmful and data miners

Or you allow no cookies and you don't get to check your email or ebay account.

All or nothing.

The problem is...

After a few weeks of surfing your cache will be chock full of data mining cookies like Adclick.cm etc.
Go ahead and view your cache and you will find hundreds and thousands of cookies.

These data mining cookies take precedence over your surfing habits.
That is to say that when You click on a link, You are forced to wait while dozens or hundreds of data mining cookies report what link you just pressed back to their data mining websites.

So You wait while all your computers bandwidth is eaten up and all your computers resources are used so that dozens of data mining cookies can tell their homepages that you just clicked another link or that you now wish to oppen a facebook page etc.

Your system resources are choked off so that dozens (if not 100's) of the cookies on your computer can report back and collect the data of how you just clicked a "facebook" or "Ebay" link etc.

So You will wait while hundreds of webpages are informed that you just clicked a new link.

You are treated as a second class citizen while hundreds of bad cookies report back to their websites.

The only thing you can do is stop using chrome, or to clear out the cache often which is a pain in the ascii.

-You shouldn't have to clear out the cache and you shouldn't have to be treated as second class citizen while adclick etc steals your information and reports back to their websites.

-----------------------------

EI and Firefox allow the user to set pages that allow cookies.
For instance, you could set hotmail to allow cookies, set facebook, ebay and gmail to set cookies and everybody esle can go screw themselves.

EI and FIrefox will then only allow that single cookie and your browser will load the page normally. You won't have hundreds of data mining cookies stored on your computer and you won't ever again have to wait for those data miners to report that you just clicked a link to facebook or ebay or wherever.

Chrome does not allow this option YET.

But if we all scream loud enough:

"Give Chrome a "Line - Item" cookie blocker, instead of this all-or-nothing guillotine effect".
"EI and FIrefox offer this, why not Chrome"?

(copy/paste to your hearts content)

maybe google will listen.

Otherwise just be aware that while you are waiting for that page to load, hundreds of data mining cookies are eating your bandwidth and stealing your info while reporting back to their perspective websites which all cause you to sit and wait until every last one of those 100 data mining cookies has finished reporting back to their website upon which point your web page may or may not open.

AND usually it doesn't load because the time frame in which your browser is expected to load YOUR webpage has expired and you get a "page not available" message.

Go to suggested features and ask for this feature:

"Give Chrome a "Line - Item" cookie blocker, instead of this all-or-nothing guillotine effect".
"EI and FIrefox offer this, why not Chrome"?


If we all scream loud enough we can get to the bottom of this and we won't ever have to wait for our browsers to report to 100 ddata mining websites while we sit and wait for the link to open up.

As far as uninstalling or installing "fixes" for "page not available".
-They only fix is to rid your computer of the hundreds of data mining cookies that chrome is allowing. Or to rid yourself of Chrome altogether.

Go ahead, I dare you to check your cache. And come on back here and tell us all how many adclick and doubleclick type cookies you have.
????  Do you recognize ANY of the thousands of cookies in your cache??

I do, I recognize Hotmail, Ebay, Gmail, Paypal and a few others. The other 1000 are data miners that are choking your bandwidth and sucking your system resources down to zero all thanks to the way CHROME HANDLES COOKIES WHILE YOU SIT AND WAIT FOR A SINGLE PAGE TO LOAD...
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available moefuzz 12/8/09 9:22 AM
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available moefuzz 12/8/09 9:41 AM
By the way,  

Many firewalls will block you from entering a valid website if just one of the cookies ALLOWED BY CHROME is a malware cookie.

Your firewall blocks malware and hence will block a website when a malware cookie tries to report your surfing habits on that website.

The answer is not to turn off certain parts of your firewall, it is to:

 Go to "suggested features" and paste this into a request:

"Give Chrome a "Line - Item" cookie blocker, instead of this all-or-nothing guillotine effect".
"EI and FIrefox offer this, why not Chrome"?

(copy/paste to your hearts content)

We don't need adclick, doubleclick and a thousand other 'click' cookies reporting on use and eating up our bandwidth while our Firewall see these malware cookies for what they really are. DATA MINERS.

So, Have you checked your cache thru options/show cookies?

How many adclick and malware cookies do you have reporting on you???
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available daniel.b.may 12/16/09 9:17 PM
OK, I had this problem, and I just fixed it.  Chrome didn't work, but Firefox worked just fine.  I didn't think to check IE, 'cause I never use it.  I live outside of the US, and last night I was using UltraSurf to see how some web pages looked from a US IP Address.  I left it running, and Windows Update did me the questionable favor of restarting my computer for me without my permission during the middle of the night.  When I got up, Chrome was broken, and I was getting this same error.  I was stumped, until I saw purephoenix's post about Chrome being heavily reliant on IE settings.  I fired IE up, and sure enough, it was broken, too.  From there, all it took was a quick foray into my IE LAN Connection settings to disable the proxy that Ultrasurf had enabled (and not disabled, since it crashed in the forced reboot), and Chrome works again.  I figure that IE is working again, too, but I haven't bothered to check... ;)
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available GLH999 12/17/09 10:05 AM
I'm having the same problem, went through all the aforementioned steps here, and in other sites.   I used Norton Ghost to restore my entire system drive to an image a week old.  Chrome worked (build xxxx.35) and then immediately after Chrome upgraded itself to build xxxx.38 it stopped working.  I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit).
Bit sad as I really like Chrome but now am stuck with IE8.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available sinkwcali 12/18/09 7:08 AM
Hi Everyone, I'm on XP running Norton Internet Security Online. I had this same problem. Clearing the cache did nothing for me. What did work is removing the chrome exception from the Norton Firewall, closing the control panel, reopening and adding chrome back as an allowed program. Chrome works fine now!
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available schiok 12/20/09 1:53 PM
Hello Everyone,

If you have "AVG Anti-virus free edition" on your computer, disable the "Link Scanner" portion will solve "the webpage is not available" problem in Google Chrome.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available 3311teawick 12/29/09 11:34 AM

Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available MichaelBarrow 12/30/09 7:13 PM
I got hit with malware a couple of days ago and, like many people on this thread, have been pulling my hair out trying to get Chrome to work and IE7 or 8 to work. Firefox works, but I discovered a couple of interesting patterns. I could get an https page to load in Chrome, but not http. And I couldn't get photos to appear in Gmail emails in Chrome or Firefox. I did everything suggested above by other posters and nothing worked. I also checked my c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file, and that wasn't the problem. What ended up working for me was to go into IE and go into settings and revert back to the "factory settings" under Advanced. That did the trick. It looks like a commenter above was right in that Chrome seems to rely a great deal on IE settings. Another app that I found wasn't working was iTunes. When I'd load in a CD to rip it into iTunes, it couldn't see out to their database and would report all of the songs as Untitled. Anyway, resetting everything in IE cured all three problems. Go figure. I'm very happy because I was about to wipe my disk clean and reinstall Windows and everything else from scratch.

Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available dowtchaboy 1/23/10 4:59 AM
As schiok suggests above, if you are using AVG try disabling the "link scanner" bit. I disabled just the "Surf-Shield" part and it seems to be working (but I will not be surprised in the least if it returns in a few days!)
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available BrotherWolf 1/29/10 8:39 AM

Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Pirrottas 2/20/10 1:38 PM
OUICK FIX!  FOR ONE WEBPAGE THAT WILL NO LONGER WORK.
Hold down back arrow in this google chrome webpage to get to the link history.
Click on "show full history.".
Click on" Delete History For This Day."
Keep doing this until you are back to the last day the webpage worked for you and it will work again.
Reason:
Somehow you picked up a corrupted link and got that in history.  I guess this is how Google creates the images of the previous webpages on your first screen.  However once you get a corrupted one it keeps going to that one.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Zcfaff0 3/19/10 12:55 PM
Hi,

Had the same problem, Google Chrome would load the homepage, but not any other pages. Read through this thread, which gave me a clue, but this is how I fixed it.

Solution Anti-Virus Program: BitDefender

1) Open BitDefender
2) Go to 'Firewall'
3) Click 'Rules'
4) Open [+] C:\users\username\appdata\local\google\chrome\application\chrome.exe
5) Change 'Deny' (in red under action) to 'Allow'

Fixed!
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available KasiAngel 4/14/10 11:41 PM
Firefox, IE8 and Google Chrome will have a hard time loading websites. The error I am getting is:

Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): The server could not be found. And of course, it does the whole "web page cannot be found"

I'm at a loss. I think it's time to reformat, anyway. I tried the AVG advice from the person who suggested it, ran a scan and checked for malware and nothing came up. I am evening deleting the history, since the problem occur'd on me 3 days ago. Next thing I will try is a system's restore of a week ago. If all else fails, I will just reformat. Anyway, is anyone familiar with this error and know the solution?
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available jaiwvee 4/18/10 11:06 AM
Well, same thing happened to me a couple days ago. The fix for me was easy: Open up IE6-8, go to Tools->Internet Options. In the Connections tab, Click Lan Settings. Then tick "automatically detect settings" or something like that,  and uncheck "use a proxy server..."
Then re-open google chrome and it should be fixed.

Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available samjk1991 4/28/10 12:13 AM
I had the same problem did all ts. When I changed proxy settings it worked again but now very slow. Like dial up.

However only when typing something into address bar. links load like normal. If I change proxy setting back it stops working all together again.

No one else in this forum seams to have reported this issue in this way any help?

Uninstalled and reinstalled many times. Win Xp SP3.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Epileptick 5/2/10 5:10 AM
Now that you covered all the useless "fixes" that I personally found, tried, and didn't work.....You can try what DID work for me! Yay!
         
- Goto the wrench at the top-right corner, then options, then under the hood tab.      
           
-and make sure the box for "use DNS pre-fetching bla bla.." is NOT checked.


That DNS pre-fetching checkbox is the on/off switch for googles secret weapon to make
it faster than the other browsers (well they all use it now I think and it's only milliseconds faster) but it hasn't been working lately I guess.  So until they fix it - turn it off.  It's that simple.  If that didn't fix it for you then it might not be a problem with Chrome, so try Firefox for a few days and monitor if it still happens.  That will give you a good idea on whats going on hopefully.

Like aurora700, I also had a malware problem.  After fixing that, Firefox worked but Chrome did not.  I fixed with Chrome, instead of with IE8 like aurora700.  So, in Chrome:

Click on the wrench in the upper right hand corner.
Click Options
Click Under the Hood
Click Change proxy settings
Click LAN settings
Uncheck "Use a proxy server for your LAN"

Chrome now works.

@souvikpravda1 and anyone else who is still having this issue, 

There's a way for you to provide us more information that might give us insight into what's going on. Can you follow the steps below to help us out?

1. Click on one of the following links to download a test-build version of Google Chrome:
Windows: Extract the zip file. When that is complete, go to Start > All Programs > Chromium.
Mac: Save and open the chrome-mac.zip file, which will unzip it into a folder. Open the folder, and open Chromium.

3. Navigate to “chrome://net-internals/#tests” 

4. Enter the URL that failed to load (or any random URL like http://www.google.com if it fails on all URLs) and click “Start tests.”

5. The results of various experiments are shown in a table. Copy all of the results in the table and paste them into a reply on this thread

Thanks a lot!

Toni

For some odd reason, Google Chrome gets its proxy settings from Internet Explorer. If you have a proxy server set up on IE, and you don't have access to it, you need to go into IE and disable it!
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available evin_a 5/24/10 3:53 AM
Suddenly, Chrome, Safari and IE stopped connecting to the internet for me. Firefox worked fine. One fix in IE fixed the issue with all the 3 browsers. This is what helped my case:

"Internet Explorer" -> "Tools" -> "Internet Options" -> "Connections" -> "LAN Settings" -> Un-Check All Boxes -> Check "Automatically Detect Settings" -> "OK".
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available SandeepPlanetEarth 6/12/10 9:54 AM
Here are the results of the test Toni wanted done.

Looks like all tests passed; but with the chrome, I cannot connect to any website.
Always get: This webpage is not available. Error 10 (net::ERR_ACCESS_DENIED): Unknown error.

The problem started on the desktop a few days back and today on this laptop.
Looks like the official chrome is not working; but the Chromium I downloaded using the zip file given by Toni seems to be working just fine.
I could not follow Toni's instructions exactly. In step2, after extracting the zip file, there is no Start > All Programs > Chromium to go to. Instead, I found a chrome.exe among extracted files and double clicked it.

Should I just use this test-version of Chrome now? But I am afraid it would be slower.

Here are the results Toni wanted.

Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available SandeepPlanetEarth 6/12/10 10:06 AM
I tried a couple of suggestions.
1. Uncheck "Use a proxy server for your LAN". Mine was already unchecked,so it did not help.
2.  make sure the box for "use DNS pre-fetching bla bla.." is NOT checked. Tried it; did not fix the problem.

Official chrome is not working. Toni's Test Chrome is working; but it is not digitally signed and McAfee is not able to verify the publisher. So I will be taking chances if I used Toni's Test Chrome. For all I know, Toni may not be even Google employee. How would I know? And may be I installed malware (posted by Toni) on my machine? Damn, I took too many chances.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available SandeepPlanetEarth 6/12/10 10:09 AM
The following did not help either. I will just give up on Chrome.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Blackanese 6/22/10 9:20 PM
had a malware problem, fixed it, then i had to uncheck proxy settings...works fine now
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available JoeVus 6/26/10 9:03 AM
I was having the same problem, and I had no malware or spyware of any kind on my system.  It finally proved to be a DNS issue, and I'm guessing it's the same problem a lot of people are having with Chrome.  The below solution (provided by my son) took care of the problem (I'm using XP--the commands may be a little different in Vista or Windows 7):

Go to Control Panel -> Network Connections -> right click on the Network Connection you use for browsing, then hit Properties -> General tab -> scroll down to "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)", highlight it but leave it checked, and then click on Properties -> Select "Use the following DNS server addresses" -> in the "Preferred DNS server" window, type 208.67.222.222 (you have to type it manually, cut and paste won't work) -> in the "Alternate DNS server" window, type 208.67.220.220 -> Hit Okay, and then Close.

This should take care of the problem.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available happypuppy 7/4/10 2:45 PM
turning off the "enable phishing and malware protection" option under "privacy" seemed to clear the problem for me
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available fonso27 8/12/10 9:36 PM
Hey Guys,

I had the same problem with Chrome were it game me the  error message Error 2 (net::ERR_FAILED): and no web site was being desplayed so I went to my McAffe Firewall settings and clicked on Restore Defaults and it worked again if you don't have McAffe restore your defaults for you antivirus. Hope this helps it did to me.

Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Owl_Eyes 9/19/10 8:42 PM
This could have happened due to this:
There was a bar that wanted you to Grant access
to google Chrome or block access.
You might've clicked block access.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Frankeymen 10/7/10 8:19 AM
WIN7 64X

I had this issue also, solved it by giving the connection another type of status. there are three called home, work and public. You always have to choose one when you setup a new connection for the first time. Just switch from home connection type to work! Did the trick for me
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available JdotM 11/9/10 10:15 AM
None of the above helped me.  I found this on another help forum, and it fixed by problem.  I don't understand it, so somebody tell me if I should not have done this, but it instantly fixed my problem.

I went to Internet Explorer, properties, and clicked on the target field
Previously, it said
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
Which I changed to
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" --in-process-plugins

Note that before the word "in" I added a space and 2 dashmarks.  The other dashes are single, though.

I have no idea why this works, but it did!
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available SaurabhJain 11/13/10 5:42 AM
Solution:

I was getting this error for the past 1 week and I have finally hit the solution. I believe the error is because of the inability of the Chrome/ FF/ IE browsers to identify the nearest DNS server for communication. So when we do a multiple refresh eventually it finds the server and loads the page. But shouldn't it do this in the first attempt. Yes. For this you need to manually set the TCP/IP properties and provide a server name in the properties window.You need to have the IP address of the nearest DNS server in your locality (contact your service provider for the same)

Right click "Network Places" and click on "Properties". It will open a window.
Right click on the "Local Area Connection" (active one) and click on "Properties"
Select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" and click on "Properties" button below
Select "Use the following DNS Server Addresses" and provide IP details in the 2 text boxes.
Click "OK" and then "Close"


Problem Solved
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available JARKIE 11/21/10 2:20 AM
In my case, I had problems with one website. It kept coming with the error page. I found out that with deleting the cookie for this site, the problem was fixed!
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available GuessAgain 11/26/10 5:00 PM
I removed the malware from my comp using malwarebytes. Easy fix: "Internet Options" under Tools in IE. Hit the "Connections" tab and continue through to "LAN Settings". Once in there, uncheck the box detailed: "Use a proxy server for your LAN (These settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN connections)". Apply and open Chrome to see if it worked!

Goodluck!
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available saiksrini 12/4/10 11:15 PM
Hi, Even i had the issue of chrome not working while IE n Firefox work fine.. What i did to get Chrome working is, went to McAfee Firewall settings-Program Permissions - Give Full access to Google Chrome; Now it works pretty fine..it must be similar issue with other anti-virus programs..Thanks,Srini
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Brad.C 12/5/10 2:02 AM
Same happened with me, suddenly any page in Chrome wouldn't open "This web page is not available" - but no Malware attack as far as I know. Panic ensued as visions of needing to run IE & FF for ever filled my mind.

But to fix it was simply, in my McAfee anti virus I found that Chrome had been switched to "Block" for some reason.

Just open up McAfee (or other anti virus) go to Firewall > Settings > Program Permissions - Find Chrome and check the status of the application.

I switched that back to "Full Access" and everything was once again right in the world.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available blrry 12/9/10 8:18 PM
I got this error but fortunately knew what made it happen. I was on a network I'd never been on before and went to Chrome. I was asked if I should let Chrome access the Web but at the time I was in a hurry and not thinking and answered "No". I then couldn't access any pages.
The fix: I went into McAfee and in the Firewall settings found the list of apps with and without permission to access the Internet. Sure enough Chrome was set to blocked. I gave it full access and voila, I was back to accessing Web sites in Chrome.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available matth211 1/3/11 9:42 AM
I am having the same problem, it only occurs when trying to access my godaddy.com email account. Like others, I recently had a malware infestation which is showing in scans as being cleared. Any advice appreciated, I already tried most of the fixes in this thread.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available silverbow25 4/5/11 8:57 AM
I noticed this problem.  Only Chrome, not IE.  I had about 20-30 tabs open though and thought, bah I should just restart.  So I completely shutdown and then started up again and it seems to be back to correct behavior again.  So I'd try the simple thing first.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Heavenlee333 6/3/11 4:42 PM
All you have to do is go to your control panel, programs, uninstall programs, then uninstall google chrome. Then go and reinstall google chrome BETA version. :))))
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available surjeet.sachdeva 8/8/11 7:13 AM
Hi guys,

This is what I did that helped me rectified this problem:
1. Goto options --> Under the Hood --> HTTPS/SSL
2. Check this: Use SSL 3.0
3. Close the browser and try again!!

Please let me know if it works!!
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Tomoya Kawasaki 11/14/11 2:12 PM
Hi everyone, 

If you're still experiencing this error, please report it here with the site url that you're having problem with. 

Thanks,
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available ericbenchimol 11/16/11 11:15 AM
This continues to be a problem for me, but only at work.  I am using a wired ethernet connection to my work network.  I will regularly get this error, and then reload around 30 seconds later and the site works.  It can happen at any site, but happens most frequently with Google sites.  In fact, I find the Google Reader to be worst.  Often when I click out to a story, it doesn't load.  But, it can happen with any site at all...

I'm sure this is a problem with my work's proxy server or the firewall settings, but it does not happen with Firefox or IE9.  Not sure why Chrome is treated differently, and I'm not sure I can change that.  I might have to go back to Firefox...
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available wknightbor 11/18/11 1:16 PM
At home I have two internet connections they are connected to my router (OpenWRT).
I use ADSL and 3G modem.
When I use ADSL connection ebay.com and microsoft.com are working fine (windows and linux all kind of browsers).

But if I  use 3G connection ebay.com and microsoft.com are working  only in internet explorer.
And there is no possobility to see ebay.com and microsoft.com in Linux when I use 3G modem.

The firewall on my computer is the same for both types of connection. And in OpenWRT too

It is very strange !!! I think something is wrong in internet provider settings...
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Creona 12/9/11 11:46 PM
I'm having the same issues. Pages will load a couple of times, and then they won't. I wait a minute or two and they'll start working again, and then they'll stop shortly after. This is more than frustrating as I really like the Chrome browser, but I'm about to just switch to Firefox if Google can't figure this out.

And I've tried several of the fixes mentioned in the thread, including the proxy server fix, and nothing is working. Please fix this or offer some help Google.
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Tomoya Kawasaki 12/12/11 2:31 PM
Hi everyone, 

Have you also checked your Firewall settings and make sure Chrome is allowed? 

Also, could you try clearing your cache and cookies? 

Lastly, have you done any malware scan lately? 

Thanks,
Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Mylah 12/30/11 3:51 PM
Well What I Would Do Is Go To The Wrench On The Top Go the options Under the hood and clear everything for all time. Cookies, Cache, And Browsing History. Then By The Next Day You Should Have A Working Chrome If Not Your May Wanna Change Your proxy settings . And Refresh Your Internet Connection . If STILL The Chrome Isn't Working I Suggest You Call Microsoft They Well Logg On Your Computer And Fix It For Free. But Only Once. Chrome Freezes get errors Mostly when your chrome haves alot of junk on it try not to add alot of apps, cookies,history and i sure this wont happen again.

Re: How can I fix Webpage is not available Smii 1/11/12 1:03 PM
Hi everyone,

I use Chrome extensively at work and at home on my laptop - but my gorgeous big desktop PC at home was a Chrome-free zone as for as long as I can remember, any site with a login screen or script (which is many, including Gmail or other google services) would bomb out to the Error 2.

Like you, I'd tried everything in this and many other threads. I'd got desperate, tried many things. Some things briefly helped but nothing consistently.

But I think I've just stumbled across the solution. For reference, I'm running:
Win 7 64
Avast! Antivirus, with exception added
Windows firewall, with exception added
Virgin Media superhub, no pertinent settings changed

And to get CHrome to behave itself? I ran it as administrator. That's it. Everything works again.
Right click, run as administrator. And it works. It was that simple.

Would other people with this problem please try this solution too and see if it helps? I'd be intrigued to see if it's just me or whether it's just fluke that it's worked for me.

Anyway, got there in the end. Let me know how you get on.

-Mark

Obviously the problem is with Chrome. Stop telling people that the cause is their computer/settings/lack of maintenance. These forums offer little help in resolving the real issue unless a developer offers a workaround.
"NOOOO, it's not our fault." when if fact, most of the time it is.  Have some respect.
