At times, as you use Internet Explorer, you may come across an error code that stops you cold in your surfing tracks. Error Code 10061 is one such roadblock. It means that the connection between your computer and the website server that you are trying to communicate with has been refused. There are several ways to try to rectify the issue.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Check the address in your toolbar to make sure it is correct. If you get this error, you may have entered the address wrong into your address toolbar. Check the entire address for errors since there is a huge difference between .com and .org at the end of a URL or http: and ftp: at the beginning of a URL.

  2. 2

    Contact the administrator of the site you are trying to visit. The administrator may have the wrong link to a specific place on the site or a server may be not working correctly. You may also need some sort of special permission to view content on that Web server.

  3. 3

    Check your system administrator if you are at work or at school. Copy and paste the entire error that you get in an e-mail to your system help desk. Include the entire Web address that gave you the error. An error of this type may be caused by a firewall or a proxy setting your work or school has control over.
