Web site found ----waiting for reply

  tonyx1302 17:50 22 Mar 2005

All of a sudden, after being connected to the Internet for a short time, if I want try and change to any different site I get the message 'Web site found-waiting for reply' in my task bar and nothing happens however long I wait and the new site never opens. In the end I have to reboot and try connecting again.
I have run my all my AV/A2 and Malware progs etc and there are no nasties shown.

XP Pro with B/B OneTel and have checked with them and they don't show any probs. I have also done a restore but the problem persists

Any suggestions please

try clearing your internet history and cache

Thanks for you response but have cleared everything but the problem is still there. Any other ideas would be very welcome

What browser are you useing and have you thought about trying a different one?

  tonyx1302 20:23 22 Mar 2005

I use IE and have done so for two years or so.nd I am a bit of a 'simpleton' where computers are concerned so have stuck with the 'if it aint broke.............' so I really don't want to get into uncharted waters with another browser although many forum members seem to advocate them.
Surely there must be a logical reason why this has suddenly started happening ?

Thank stalion for you input. Can you suggest any other ideas?

This may or may not work

Go to start, run and type in CMD

From the command prompt type ipconfig /flushdns

(note the space between ipconfig and /flushdns)

stalion... Thank you. I clicked on your suggestion (support MS.com and found one of my settings ( LCE ? )was not at auto so have corrected that and also and cleared Int.His. again even though I thought I had already done so, it still ran for 20+ secs.

JonnyTub. Thank you. I acted on your suggestion and have now rebooted. All seems a okay ! I don't know which has hopefully corrected the fault which only time will tell, but thinking positively, I will 'green tick' the problem.

Thanks very much to you both
