  • Hi Rafael, after checking the issue, it seems this is a general Windows XP related issue. As this forum focuses on SBS specific issues, this inquiry would best be posted to Windows client forum:

    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us.  Thank you for your understanding.

    Also, for your information, I'd like to include the following steps regarding the issue:

    How To Fix the 404 Not Found Error

    1. Retry the web page by clicking the refresh/reload button or trying the URL from the address bar again. The 404 Not Found error has been known to appear on occasion even if there is no real issue so a simple refresh will often load the page you were looking for.

    2. Check for errors in the URL. Often times the 404 Not Found error appears because the URL was typed wrong or the link that was clicked on points to the wrong URL.

    3. Move up one directory level at a time in the URL until you find something. For example, if www.w.com/a/b/c.htm gave you the 404 Not Found error, move up to www.w.com/a/b/. If you get nothing here, move up to www.w.com/a/. This should lead you toward what you're looking for or at least confirm that it's no longer available.

    4. If you move all the way up to the website's main page, try to run a search for the information you're looking for. If a search function isn't available, try finding your information by using links from this page to dig deeper into the site.

    5. It's also possible that you simply have the wrong URL - entirely. You might be trying to access a webpage that exists as another name.

    6. When you're this lost, the best course of action is to search for the page at a popular search engine, like Bing. Chances are you'll find the page you're looking for.

    7. Finally, if all else fails, you may want to attempt to contact the webmaster for information on where you might locate the page you're looking for. The webmaster of most Internet sites can be reached via email at webmaster@website.com, replacing website.com with the actual website name.

  • This forum is for SBS. Is your error related to that?
