Hi, nik_76 :)
  1. Enter your Control Panel and double-click on Network Connections
  2. Then right click on your Default Connection
    • Usually Local Area Connection for Cable and DSL, or AOL Connection.
  3. Left click on Properties
  4. Double-Click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item
  5. Select the radio dial that says Obtain DNS Servers Automatically
  6. Press OK twice to get out of the properties screen
  7. Restart the computer
Go to Start->Run->Type CMD and click Ok. The MSDOS Window will be displayed. At the command prompt, type the following and press Enter after each line:

ipconfig /flushdns (The space between g and / is needed)
Exit

Restart the computer.

If that does not resolve the issue and you are running SP2, follow these steps:

Reset the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

Go to Start->Run, type CMD and click Ok. The MSDOS window will be displayed. At the prompt type the following and press Enter after each line:

netsh int ip reset C:\Resetlog.txt
Exit

Restart the computer.

Warning Programs that access or monitor the Internet such as antivirus, firewall or proxy clients may be negatively affected when you run the netsh winsock reset command. If you have a program that no longer functions correctly after you use this resolution, reinstall the program to restore functionality.
