dns problem?

  heepster 19:10 09 May 2010

Windows vista updated itself today and since then, although I am connected to the net I cant get it to display anthing on explorer or firefox. A network test said "You may have a dns problem"
Anyone any ideas on how to fix this please? Its way beyond me...

1. Click on Start button.
2. Type Cmd in the Start Search text box.
3. Press Ctrl-Shift-Enter keyboard shortcut to run Command Prompt as Administrator. Allow elevation request.
4. Type netsh winsock reset in the Command Prompt shell, and then press the Enter key.
5. Restart the computer.
