Computer Q&A Board  /  Windows  /  false error message
Posted by: Paul_Sens (Guest), February 22nd, 2008, 5:25am
When I start up my computer, I get the error message:"Licence error ! Impossible to connect to the licence server. Please make sure that you are connected to Internet and try again later on. It is also possible that the server is not available at the moment. In that case, simply try again later on." So far, this is my translation of the original error message in french. (I live in France and I have a french version of Windows XP SP2). The message continues in english: "Code:404. Reason: can't resolve hostname to IP address."
When I see this message, I am already connected to Internet or I can connect without any problem. So, the message is entirely superfluous.
Why do I get this message and how can I avoid it ?

clearly one off your startup programs is attempting and failing to connect to a server on the Internet.  That's what the code 404 indicates. check all your startup programs including any anti-virus are anti-spyware programs.
