Let's try one more thing ... 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 and chose to run the bat file as Administrator. Your computer will reboot.

that one didnt help...

but u know guyz.. i fixed it.. and thx for everyone for their caring..
and here is the way:

so.. i got 2 computers one of them is perfectly working but the other isnt..
so.. here what i did according to "opendns.com" for windows 7..::
1. Click the Start Orb, then select Control Panel.


2. Click on Network and Sharing Center.



3. Click on Local Area Connection under 'Active Networks.'



4. Click the Properties button.

Windows 7 may prompt you for permission to make network setting changes.




5. Highlight 'Internet Protocol Version 4' and click Properties.



*All these was copy and paste from "https://store.opendns.com/setup/operatingsystem/windows-7"
and then i just used the same DNS address that on the working computer..
XD.. was easy like that.. :P.. thx again...
