Try command Promt.Type in ipconfig /flushdns a small gap between ipconfig and forward slash or it will not work.Press enter.It should tell you DNS Cache has been flushed if so reboot the computer and see if it makes any difference.if that does not work try.Tools.Internet Options.Advanced and press reset.This will reset IE7 to its original state.Your add-ons will be missing when you reboot after reset.,just go to tools Manage Add-ons and enable them again..

how do i get to command promt

[IE 7 not working ]Hi that is a new website and has never been checked for Malware so not sure if any downloads would be advisable.Not having problems connecting to the internet just with IE7.

Hi.I have notice that you are promoting this site on other different threads.Is this your own Site and why has it no safety certificate.

That is a particularly anonymous site isn't it!

It is.I always get a bit suspicious when I see someone promoting sites like this.Now there is probably nothing wrong with it but I like sticking to sites that I know and have a security clearance,This is obviously a new site that has not been checked out yet,

buteman, Pineman,

Yes, its mine. The website has nothing to download. (off topic: How do I get a 'safety certificate' or have it Malware checked?


It does sound like you have DNS issues. Have you tried restarting your modem?
