What are the different ways of fixing an error message problem?

Asked by flo (12932points) July 8th, 2015

You click on a link and you get error message. What are the different ways (if more than one) of fixing it immediately, with a click of the mouse, so it’s no longer an error message?

What was the link and what does the error message say?

As there are a wide variety of errors, it’s hard to say.

Most errors caused by clicking on a link mean there is a problem on the other end of the line though, and there isn’t anything you can do about that; it has to be fixed by whoever set up the website.

You need to give way more info if you want a good info.

Don’t click on anything. Read the error message.

You can go on another browser. You can clear your cookies.

Some error messages are fake. They try to trick you into downloading software intended to fix the issue, but it is actually malware.

I think the word “click” is misleading, I meant use the mouse but not click on a link (which I’ve never seen on an error message.)
@Dutchess_III This is not about one error message.

So you get them a lot? Do they all say the same thing?

flo's avatar

No, not a lot, and they say different things.

So, did you get rid of them?
