DNS error on a specific url

Guest

Hallo! Can anyone help me with this peculiar problem? When I try to explore
the ACDSee site, (www.acdsee.com) I only receive the message: Page cannot be
viewed etc., and DNS error. It is only that page. The page is not closed down
because I can reach it from my job computer. I´ve tried to virus scan and
I´ve used Spyboot and Adaware as well as Spychecker. Nothing seems to help.
I´m running Win xp Pro Sp2 and IE 6.0.

Hi Paddock :)

Try the following and see if it helps:

Can not display page - Server or DNS error or "Internet Explorer could not
open the search page" / unable to view web pages
http://inetexplorer.mvps.org/answers.htm#dns

If these steps do not resolve your problem, or you need help with the above,
please post back to this thread with the details and any error messages.

Hope this helps

Jan :)

Check C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc for a file named HOSTS with no
extension. (Not Hosts.sam)
Make sure Windows is set to show hidden files and folders and is NOT set to
hide extensions for known file types.
If HOSTS exists, rename it to HOSTS.OLD
Reboot an try again.

Or, In a Cmd window, enter
ipconfig /flushdns
then clear your TIF also, and re-boot.
