Whenever I try to run the repair I get this:-

Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action could not be completed clearing DNS cache.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks, but all I get is:-

"Function failed during execution."

Go in to admin tools/component services/services(local) and make sure the dns client is not turned off.It will then finish repairing the connection.

Thanks postie24, that worked.
Should I leave the DNS service on manual or change it to automatic?
