By default Internet Explorer 5 will show a friendly version of any HTTP errors it receives, for example Error 404 Page Moved. This tweak controls that functionality allowing it to be enabled or disabled.
Open your registry and find the key mentioned below.
Create a new string value, or modify the the existing value, named 'Friendly http errors'. Modify the value to equal 'YES' to enable friendly errors or 'NO' to disable them.
Exit your registry and restart IE for the changes to take effect.

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
Value Name: Friendly http errors
Data Type: REG_SZ
Data: YES or NO
