New to this forum, so hello you Macreatures! ;)
Alright lets get to business -
I own am iMac and for a few months now I've been dealing with this weirrrrrrddddd issue:
For some reason, about 90% of the pages I try to view online send me back an error message saying "not found. The requested URL was not found". I get this message on A LOT of webpages, on YouTube videos, almost 8 times out of 11 I'd get this message.
It only happens on my iMac. Every laptop or smartphone won't have any issues so I know the problem must be with the computer.
Any professional experienced and patient help would be sooooooo appreciated!!!!!!!

Thanks you guys.

Go to settings

advance
DNS
