Internet Explorer, Windows 8 64, Desktop version - This Page Can't Be Displayed error

Hello.  We are unable to open web pages in Internet Explorer (the desktop version) on a Windows 8 laptop.  We can consistently open pages in the Internet Explorer app.

Occasionally and without pattern, the IE desktop version will open a page but then revert to the "This Page Can't Be Displayed" error.

We have reset IE but the problem persists.

Suggestions?

jcimarron - the windows 8 'app' on the start/primary screen - struggling with verbiage.  the application opens and works fine.  it's just somewhat strange to operate for the person i'm working with at the moment.

will have a look at the article you included.

many thanks.
