Why the proof of P=NP (or P=!NP) is false? Where I will find the conclusion on the proof that show it is wrong?

As far as I know it's currently unproven. There are several web pages describing the problem and discussing the efforts to prove it.

My computer now fixed. But what I need to write to google [the keywords] to see the best result of the problem in the proof that showing the proof is false.

It can often take a bit of work to find the answer you are looking for, but even if you started with the question in the OP, you will end up somewhere. Then just follow the trail.

You keep saying "the" proof is wrong. What "proof" are you referring to?

In the latest new in Tapuz hebrew math forum, Israeli mathematicians tell that the proof was prove. Now I know that the proof have failure errors. I ask what are they? Or to get: A site that describe it and tell why the not true.

Although a proof of such might be accomplished in our lifetime, I would take any claims of a proof with a very heavy dosage of salt. It's a mine field for sure.
