try this.

Try command prompt and type in ipconfig /flushdns a small gap between ipconfig and forward slash or it will not work.Ok. it should tell you DNS has been flushed if so reboot and see if it works any better.

ipconfig /flushdns and press enter
net stop dnscache and press enter
net start dns cache and press enter

Start. run.type in, cmd.Ok.Command prompt will open and type those in one at a time pressing enter after each one.
Thats how you do it in Xp not sure about vista.

Do as buteman said.
Go to Start > Run. here you must type in cmd and click on OK.
Now type in ipconfig/flushdns and press Enter
Next type in net stop dnscache and press enter.
And finally type in net start dns cache and press Enter
