Annoying Internet Explorer/XP problem!

  Wolfman22 12:23 28 Feb 2006

Hi all.

Updated my mates PC with a load of new bits including a new hard drive and a new copy of XP Home (SP2).

All running well. Apart from the internet problems!

Internet Explorer will not go to any site unless I put the IP address in (even then it's very hit and miss apart from google). Put the name in the address bar and it wont connect. I was told by his ISP (Supanet BB), to change the IP and DNS server settings from auto to manual using the servers they suggested. Done this, worked OK for an evening then same problems again.

Only software installed apart from OS is AVG 7.0 and Spybot SD.

What can be causing this? What settings can I check?

If you need any more info from me please ask.

Any help/suggestions would be great.
