Hi Melita

If you want to reset your DNS try the steps below

Open Notepad
Copy/paste the bolded text (below) into Notepad:

Code:
@Echo off
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
cls
echo Script finished.
pause
del %0
On the Notepad Menu, Click File -> Save As
in the "Save as type" Box: Use the pull down menu set the "Save as type" to "All Files (*.*)"
In the File Name box type: reset.bat
Then, save reset.bat to your Desktop

Thank you very much for this. I just marked the thread as 'unsolved'.

All help is most welcome. In fact I was giving some thought to DNS settings too but I don't know much about it. I have been using Open DNS for some time, after deleting the ISP's DNS settings. Could you please tell me what is achieved by resetting DNS. What happens when DNS is reset.

In future I must wait for a few days before I mark a post as 'solved'.

Kind regards,

Sometimes a bad DNS entry will be cached, so you will need to 'flush' the cache.

Also, if your Hosts file get hijacked or corrupted, you will want to repair it.

In fact the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool reset the hosts file to default status when it did the scan. So I am OK with that. I m going to attend to the DNS cache now.

Thank you,

(1) What is the difference between making the 'reset.bat' file to do this, as shown in your previous post, and doing it the way it is shown in your link, [C:\] ipconfig /flushdns, with the command prompt?

(2) If I am to make the bat.file, what do I do after that to flush the DNS cache? I have never used a bat file before
