I just need to clarify with you, your getting the page can't be found when trying to install apps or at other times as well? If it's just when attempting to install apps via a link online to download the app itself you could be being referred to the official android market which Vox can't use. (not without rooting or some such thing, I'm not very technologically gifted, sorry!)

If it's when you click on the app download link you could be being sent to the Google android market hence the cannot find page message. This has happened when I've clicked the download this app link in the Vox browser only to be referred to the market, hence cannot find page/app message.

Yes but is the issue as lioslaith said, that you are trying to follow links that lead to android market which will not work on the vox unless you take special steps?

Frankola,

Your problem is that the links you are clicking on are trying to take you to the Google Android Marketplace, which doesn't not work on the Vox unless you root and install stuff. You should go directly to the various other android marketplaces, mentioned in other forum messages or google for the particular .apk you are looking for.

I have this problem when I go to Appbrain, I click on install and it takes me to the unavailable site. Unfortunately I cannot find the app I want any where else.

Appbrain links tothe android market to dload. If you have an android smartphone you could probably get it on there then copy it to your vox? Otherwise, you just have to keep googling 'til you find a place that doesn't need the market, sadly.
