hello people

i am using windows 98

Unfortunately,although it seems i am connected on the internet i cannot use it.When i open any web site i get a dns error.The same things happen with mirc (irc client)
Also,i think that all this happen because of a program called flashget (although i have unistall it)
Any help would be very appriciate

Yours,

Alex

Try doing a search for a file called "hosts" - no extension - and rename it to hosts.old

Then reboot and see what happens.
