Hi just recently I have had to go into Command Prompt to run the above program.
The pages get a bit slow to open,and maybe computer a bit sluggish. I was just wondering if there were any way of clearing the DNS cache daily without having to go to command promt.

Are you pinging sites by domain name and then IP address and finding that the domain name ping fails? The cache is there for a reason - it's supposed to speed up DNS resolution, if you need to clear it daily something else is up with your PC - try different DNS server addresses and/or remove and re-install your firewall. You could try OpenDNS but it appears to slow Google searches; click here

Many thanks.I could not get your first one to work for some reason.But your second one works Ok.

Will now class as resolved.

No I don't need to clean it daily but probably every 2 or 3 or 4 weeks it does help when cleared.
Just being lazy I suppose.
I have had a look at OpenDNS with your link.But if it slows down browsing I will give it a miss just now as I am trying to speed things up a bit.But will keep it in mind for the future.
Many Thanks for your help.
