My DNS thing is not working

I often get 'Page cannot be displayed' when clicking on a link, on google for example. Also on certain sites such as click here. Even if I enter them in the address bar manually, I still cannot reach them. Same with IE and Firefox.

I think I need to flush something?

Pop flush dns server? in google

or

click here

Mmm 'ipconfig /flushdns' gives 'Failed during execution'. (no giggling at the back)

Control panel/admin tools/component services/services local.

Make sure dns client is running and set to auto

Although it's not necessarily the answer.
More info as to your 'net connection - modem or router, wired or wireless, ISP?

DNS Client was stopped. I've set it to auto and started it. Still can't get to my click here, but I got to Microsoft OK.
