Error 105 is an error which is related with Internet access. It represents that the web browser is unable to connect to the requested server and as a result the corresponding webpage cannot be displayed by the browser. This will prevent the users from accessing Internet temporarily or permanently. Disabling the Internet causes lots of issues since most of the user related tasks requires Internet access.
The reasons behind the Error 105 often reside in the local machine and not on the server machine. Though the message says "Server not found”, the actual problem may be residing with the local computer itself. The firewall in Windows 7 is one reason that prevents the web browsers from connecting to an Internet server. When the web browser is unable to connect to the server, it displays the error message that the server could not be found.
Error 105 can be fixed easily by disabling the Firewall. Windows 7 system consists of a ‘firewall orange’ which is actually causing the problem. Turning off this ‘firewall orange’ and activating the Windows 7 will remove the issue and fixes the "Error 105" error. Alternatively you can add the web browsers to the exceptions list of the firewall so that the firewall will allow those web browsers to send/receive data across Internet.
