Try this out then:
1. Click Start then Run and type in cmd then press Enter...this will bring up command prompt.
2. in command prompt type ipconfig /flushdns (you will get a message saying successfully flushed DNS)
3. type exit and try browsing again
If this does not work than do the following:
If this is Windows XP with SP2 then do the following:
1. Click on Start then run again and cmd should still be there press enter.
2. Type in (no quotes) "netsh winsock reset catalog" then press enter(in a few seconds you should get a message saying that system must be restarted)
3. Type exit then enter.
4. Click on Start then Turn Off Computer then click on restart then when system comes back up try browsing again.
If this is not a computer with SP2 let me know and I will post the instructions for Sp1.
sure hope someone has an answer for this one. I've been pulling my hair out for 3 days now. I'm a software developer, and am somewhat familiar with networking and OS guts, but can't figure this one out:
We have 8 Windows machines on our LAN and all work perfectly except ONE, which uses XP Media Center (Home) SP3, and worked fine until last week.
I can ping everywhere, using both IP address & machine/domain name.
I can map drives.
I can access this machine from other machines using Remote Desktop.
But IE7 is dead, just displays "IE cannot display the webpage".
Network diagnostics results are attached.
Windows Firewall is OFF. No other firewall installed.
Tried "netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt", Tried "netsh winsock reset catalog", Tried "ipconfig /flushdns", Tried installing IE8.
DHCP looks OK, no IP conflicts, etc.
Time to get the hammer?

Tried in Safe Mode with Networking – Nogo
Tried to Ping – www.msn.com – Request could not find host
Tried IPConfig /release & /renew
Tried ipconfig /flushdns
Tried netsh winsock reset catalog
Under Network connection it says that the Local Area connection is connected.
Checked in Dev Manager – Network Adapters – McAFee was installed. Uninstalled it and rebooted .
