Windows 7: Google Chrome ''Resolving Host''

Welcome to Seven Forums Rosemaryc2. The part of that .bat file that probably fixes it is the flush dns. DNS basically takes a web address such as www.sevenforums.com and translates it to an IP address 172.16.254.1 (not actual address, just an example). DNS cache basically stores addresses you have visited, so they will load faster when you visit them again. If the DNS cache becomes corrupted, by a bad address, or some other degradation, it can cause issues.

A flush can fix that (as at work for you). But it should not return unless there is some other issue. I am not a networking expert, so the question as to why the problem returns so quickly is a hard one. You might try power cycling your router and modem (power down, unplug for a bit, then restart). You could also try changing your DNS provider to something like Google.

https://developers.google.com/speed/...dns/docs/using

If no help, you might make a new thread, and reference this one.

Save as flush.bat to your desktop.

Right click the .bat file and choose to Run as Administrator. Your computer will reboot itself. See if that fixes it.

Thank you for this. I've been having the resolving host issue for a few days and finally Googled it and found this. I ran the batch file, my computer restarted itself, and the problem seems to have gone away. I copied the contents into an e-mail to myself in case it happens again or if someone else I know is having the same problem. Thanks again.

Why would you call an Acer that? I mean sure, an Acer isn't a HP. But, they aren't that bad.

Thanks! Two years ago I tried to find a solution to the "Resolving Host" problem and nothing worked, so I switched to a non-Chrome browser. Last month I decided to try Chrome again and found your solution. Since then I haven't had any problems for a whole month. Thanks for your help!

Thanks

I didn't realise how slowly my Chrome was running until I compared it with my wifes laptop, I had noticed the resolving host message but just thought that it was my internet speed.
I looked further into it and after spending many hours on other web page solutions - all to no avail - as a last resort, tried this solution and ......... a resounding success !!!!!!!!
Can't thank you enough.
Oh, and I posted a link on all the other 'solution' web pages!

I am having the "Resolving Host" problem on my laptop, but not on my desktop. Both are running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 and Chrome 42.0.2272.76 m. On the laptop, I have changed the DNS address to 8.8.8.8 and unchecked "Predict network actions to improve page load performance". I have run the flush bat file referenced above, but the problem still exists on the laptop. What can I do now?

Welcome to Seven Forums orphan58. How do the 2 different PCs connect? Both wirelessly? Via the same router, internet connection? Is the "Resolving Host" problem repeatable? It happens often enough you will see it each time? If so, try booting to Safe Mode w/ Networking, and see if it appears there. You won't want to surf like that for too long as many things are disabled, and the resolution will be low.

Safe Mode

Also, since the laptop is portable, you might try connecting to another connection, even at a Starbucks or something. Perhaps a neighbor will let you test.

Both the laptop and desktop are on the same wireless router. The problem occurs all the time. I booted in safe mode. I ran Sysbot and fix what was found. I ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, but no problems found. I problem still exists in safe mode. Saturday I will try on different wireless network.
