    Well, You guess is correct. Some Internet browsing problems can be caused by invalid DNS cache entries stored on your Windows Vista PC.Its time to flish and restart Windows Vista’s DNS cache. To solve this problem you need to clear the DNS cache. To do so, go through this:-

    1. Open up command prompt in Windows Vista with administrator rights. You simply need to right-click on the Command Prompt icon and hit on Run as Administrator.

    2. Now type in the following command:
    ipconfig /flushdns
    This command typically clears up any problems that might have been occurring. Please remember that if you are using a different web browser like Firefox, you should possibly also close and then re-open since Firefox also has its own DNS cache too.

    Now you need to Restart the Restart DNS Service.

    Open up an administrator mode command prompt as above, and then type in the following commands:

    net stop dnscache
    net start dnscache
    Or you can restart the DNS Services from Services:

    To do this you need to open up the Services dialog in the Control Panel or as an alternative type the word services inside the Start menu search box after you have clicked on the Pearl (Start menu). After opening the dialog or window, look for the service called “DNS Client” and hit on the button called Restart Service.
