DNS Caching Issues with Win XP/2k


When Windows XP/2000 goes out to fetch a webpage, it keeps a good DNS entry and a bad DNS entry. This registry file will tell it to forget bad DNS entries and tell Windows not to cache it. [Registry File]*  File is only for Windows XP/2000. DO NOT USE ON ANY OTHER VERSION!.

This utility will flush out your DNS cache. When you have a hard time reaching websites or certain ones, try this. Rebooting will do the same, but why go through all of that? [FlushDNS.bat.] Just save the file on your Desktop or stick it in the Start, Programs or Start, All Programs. Please click save as to save it. Clicking open will run it.
