Help!! When I turned my laptop on and after putting in my password, I got a white screen, then it displayed a message saying “Navigation to the webpage was canceled.” This message stayed up and didn’t allow me to do anything, even the cursor didn’t move. After a few minutes, the page changed to another message saying “This program cannot display the webpage.” What it that? Both messages didn’t give me any options to close it. I can turn off the laptop by holding the power button but when I try to use again the same thing happens. I have Windows 7. Any help will be appreciated.
“Navigation to the webpage was canceled” is a malicious message that can take over your browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome and lock up your whole computer screen. It is absolutely frustrating that “Navigation to the webpage was canceled” message appears on your computer because it won’t give you any option to close the page, even you try a million times to refresh the page or restart the computer, it still shows on your computer and will not go away itself. This is a complex issue if the message shows up on your computer. If it only shows on your browsers or any other window you open, it may be some settings on your computer or program are changed. For example, your .chm files are not showing any content and it gives the warning above instead if you try to open it or when you try to install the software from the website or open any web page, this error message appears. Under such circumstance, you can fix the problem by modifying the settings back and get your browser or program working again.
However, another issue that needs special attention is when”Navigation to the webpage was canceled” locks your whole computer. In this case, you must get a malware in your computer called Ukash. The virus belongs to Ransomware which is capable of locking one’s computer and blocking other programs or encrypting files. It threatens innocent users and asks them to pay a fine through Ukash voucher in order to get computer unlocked. The nasty virus always infiltrates the target computers without any permission or knowledge by using security exploits. After that, it begins its aggressive attacks on your machine. As soon as you turn your computer on, instead of showing your desktop icons, “Navigation to the webpage was cancelled” message comes up immediately and freezes your computer screen. It shows on a white background and prevents you from doing anything on the computer. You are not able to close it because keys on the keyboard don’t work at all, neither the mouse moves. In addition, you can’t exit the screen even by hitting escape key, and if you try ctrl+alt+delete, you won’t get task manager listed. All you can do at that moment is to shut down the machine. But even if you tried shutting down and rebooting, the same thing keeps happening.
We must pay more attention on the second situation because it means your computer is at risk. “Navigation to the webpage was canceled” warning can be a fake message displayed by Ukash virus. If you get such virus in your computer, running security tools won’t help to get rid of it. It is suggested users to remove the message manually and get the normal desktop back as soon as possible to avoid further damages like data loss or identify theft on the computer.
Both “Navigation to the webpage was canceled” and “This Program Cannot Display The Webpage” messages are harmful to your computer safety. If a Ransomware is installed on your computer, it can change your browser or computer settings and add malicious codes to your PC immediately. Thus, you will get numerous problems on your computer like computer screen is frozen and you are not able to access any files or music and documents. If you try to open task manager, it closes itself immediately. Besides, there is no option for you to close this fake message so that users are required to restart the computer to any of safe modes first and get rid of “Navigation to the webpage was canceled” manually.
