"This webpage is not available." Why am I getting this so often?

Every time, and I do mean EVERY TIME, I try to go to a webpage, bookmarked or not, frequently used or not, I get the error "This webpage is not available." I refresh and the page loads. EVERY TIME! I mean, I love Chrome but this is seriously making me consider going back to Firefox. I did a "man on my chat" interview and of my friends that use Chrome more than 50% have the exact same issues. Different operating systems (some are even MAC). How can this be fixed??
 
NOTE: I have gone into tools and removed the checkmark beside "Show suggestions for navigation errors" but all that did was make the page look more basic.
 
Here's my details:
 
Google Chrome version (type in about:version into the address bar): 4.0.249.78 (36714)
Operating System: Vista Home Premium
URLs (if applicable): Any (gmail, facebook, cbc.ca ... etc.)
Error Message: This webpage is not available

Here are some suggestions:

I am also getting this error. Never had this error before....it started happening a couple weeks ago. Seriously annoying! Check IE and it loads pages fine. Thinking of going to FF.
 
Any help on this issue?

i found this response on another thread.
 
i do have vista as mentioned previously but the firewall is not active. also i have norton but since this problem ONLY just started occuring within the last two weeks and i've had norton for 3 years and have been using chrome since it came out .. i'm thinking that's not the issue either.
 
i'll do what they suggest and report back
