Hi Sc00by22,

Try the troubleshooting methods in this article: Error Loading Websites.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

I'm having problems with Outlook also resolving servers, it can't be my ISP because I was at my Mums when I first posted and now I'm at my dads I still have the same problem.

Be sure and check out all of the troubleshooting suggestions in the article in post #2.

Are you able to access websites in Internet Explorer?

Go to the Control Panel then Network Connections.
Click once on your active Connection.
From the menu on the left, select Repair This Connection.

If no joy loading websites,
Is there any Proxy set or used?
Check to see if set to automatic:

In Firefox,
Go Tools/ Options/ Advanced/ click on the Network Tab, then click Settings.
Select the radio button that says Auto Detect Proxy Settings for all this Network
Click Okay

In Internet Explorer,
Go to Tools/ Internet Options/ click on the Connections tab, then click on LAN Settings.
Select Automatically Detect Settings
Click Okay twice.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

I've tried everything on the list, My Mum and Dad are both using Sky it might be that their DNS server is down but I'm not quite sure, I've found a site called OpenDNS and trying that at the moment
