i also tested on a blank html page and the link worked so i copied the code over but the same error came up !!

What Martin said.
Have you defined your site in Dreamweaver?
i inserted the link via the properties toolbar on the bottom with html on, i typed http://www.google.com and it added the site root infront and changed the // to \\ and i double checked a million times, i also tried via modify>make link, and also insert>hyperlink, all did the same but only on the template, When i start a new html page and make a link via properties toobar on the bottom it works !!, i also tried copying the code from the blank html inserted it into the template but the same result !!
Thank you all for being so helpful and replying
