Google Chrome ''Resolving Host''

Hi,For some time now been having this problem with chrome when I open goggle I get a note on bottom right of screen Resolving Host.
Now been looking through goggle regarding this problem have tried the dns software and with no luck and said to set the dns at (Ipv4) at top row 8:8:8:8 bottom row 8:8:4:4.
It also mentioned the (Ipv6) should change to top row 2001:4860:4860:888 Bottom row 2001:4860:4860:8844.
Now would that method make any changes to the resolving host pain in the bum.
Have cleared the goggle cache and all other sorts of things.
Any help on this Please.
Many thanks

Let's flush the DNS cache and restore MS's Hosts file. Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

@Echo on
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0


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.

You're welcome It wouldn't hurt, but shouldn't be necessary. You likely had a bad dns cache, it happens, but unless you have an issue that constantly causes it, it will be a one time thing. A Guy

Thanks so much, A Guy! Just worked your magic on my little P.O.S. Acer and it's not so much of a P.O.S. as it was!

Hello,
I have also been having the "resolving host" issue on my laptop at home and on all 3 computers at work. After alot of searching this issue on google and talking to a tech guy I know, I still haven't found an absolute answer for this. I was excited to see your fix on here and thought it would surely to the trick. I tried it at home first on my laptop and it seemed to fix it for a while but the problem has returned.
However when I used it at work, the problem has not returned there. I was wondering if you've had anymore experience dealing with this or any new solutions. I have read that it's a problem between Frontier and Google but I don't know if that's true. I've used Frontier for years so I find it hard to believe this issue would suddenly come up now.
Thanks for any more help you can provide. This issue is driving me crazy!
