HTTP 500 error

If you suddenly receive a HTTP 500 Internal Server Error message in opening a page, retry it again to see whether you can. If not, wait a few seconds and try to load the URL again. Sometimes, the error will be caused when there is a temporary issue with the URL you are going to visit or the website’s sever. However, if the error appears again and again, I can say that there might be some problems with your PC or the server itself. But you’d better check the computer with these tips before contacting the website owner if you really want to visit the page.

First of all, you should run your antivirus programs to check and remove all computer viruses.

Here, I take Internet Explorer as an example to show you how to do: go to Tool, Manage Add-ons to see what you have ever added to your browser. Uninstall the recently –installed ones to see whether you are able to launch your Internet Explorer correctly. If not, try disabling them one by one to determine the one that causing the error and disable or uninstall it.

After that, you need to keep your Windows registry working in a good order. This means that you should trim down all the bloated entries within the registry and fix all registry errors. Playing as the main component of the Windows-based operating system, a minor mistake within the registry will stop the computer from running properly. When your web browser cannot recall the required entries to display your content correctly, a HTTP 500 Internal Server Error message will appear. Thus, you should scan your whole computer for any potential & existing errors and fix them all immediately.

If you have performed all the above steps but keep on getting a HTTP 500 Internal Server Error message, contact the site owner right now. This is because it might be caused due to a problem existing in the server itself.
