    There have been many 404 errors showing on my browser and It's very annoying. I have searched Google and it's kinda too much technical for me. Someone have solutions for this??

    Is this on YOUR site or just while you are browsing the internet ?
    If it is your site, what type of site is it ? eg WordPress
    If while browsing what browser do you use ? eg Firefox

    A 404 error means that the file you have requested cannot be found. It is not generated by your computer, but by the remote server that you have requested the file from.

    Normally there is nothing you can do about 404 errors as you do not have control over the remote server, so you are unable to intervene. If it concerns you, then contact the sites administrator.

    Having said that, your description of the problem is kind of vague. If you can expand on it a bit more then we may be able to help further. Do you see the 404 errors on a certain site? Or is it randomly occurring on all sites that you visit? If it's just a certain site, then I would be inclined to think that they may be having issues. If it's all sites, it may indicate a problem with your browser, or something similar.

    Thanks for replies. It happens with random sites during browsing. Same for firefox and Chrome. For example, I always use http://ubersuggest.org/ and at some point I can't search and it shows that it uses Google API etc etc and error 404. I'm also curious because I do a lot of searches, signups, and traffic exchange site bots and I use my normal IP address.

    I ran into this similar problem about a year ago. It drove me bat shit crazy for like 2 months. If I hit the site over and over the page would come up. At first I thought it was some websites but then noticed it was random and without rhyme or reason. Might browse for hours without it and then 404s started appearing over and over and then randomly disappear.

    What it turned out to be was a failing router. I had an expensive Linksys VPN router and it worked great for about 3 years and then started this shit. I replaced the router and problem solved. I had the identical router at the home office and it worked fine for about 4 years and started this same shit. Replaced it and 404s went in the trash with the old routers.

    I'd try swapping out the router.

    Try installing 404 to start plug-in if you are using Wordpress.

    You may also need to edit your HTACESS in your c-panel
    It is a hidden file, so you will need to select show hidden files before editing as follows:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>


    # END WordPress

    It's not for my blog. It's just normal browsing of sites, I'll try what are mentioned above and see what works.
