      You won't lose anything by doing a dns flush. The addresses 'flushed' will accumulate when you start browsing again.

      Do you have more than one pc on your network? If so, I assume the other(s) are working ok? If not, can you try a friends laptop on your network?

      Your ISP could be having DNS problems although, if you've noticed your browser going to both an IP address and a url (www.yahoo.com), it sounds like your dns is working. You could try going into your tcpip properties on your network adapter and set one or both of you dns addresses to the dns addresses at OpenDNS. Try browsing to http://69.147.76.15 (yahoo) and http://65.55.17.25 (msn). If you can't browse to those, you might have other problems.

      Make sure you've rebooted your cable/dsl modem, router and pc. Also make sure your Antivirus is up to date and scanning. You might want to scan your system with Super Anti spyware or Malwarebytes.

      Recently I have been having issues with just one computer on my home network connecting to sites. It does not happen every time. With Explorer 6.0 when I would select say a favorite, on the bottom of the screen instead of showing "connecting to Yahoo.com" it would show "connecting to 69.125.22... 9the IP address). It would just sit there and never load the page or fault out. I now have IE 8 and still have the same problem, except now it will show "connecting to yahoo.com" and just sit there showing the connecting symbol for a while, then just stop and nothing on the page.
      I have cleaned out history, and such..all th eobvious things. I have not done a DNS flush as I have no clue what I will loose if I do that, not even sure if it would help.
      I have searched the internet and can not find my exact problem.
      Just wondering if any of you computer experts have any safe suggestions.
      Thanks, steve

      Or you can do nothing and wait for DNS to resolve itself in a couple of days which is I did and AWEKAS is just fine now. ________________________________ From:
