I am suddenly not able to browse with IE8 ! Every page comes up with " Webpage cannot be displayed" after fleeting status message at the bottom which says something like "//ieframe.dll/dnserror.htm#"

I have no issues browsing with Chrome or Firefox.

Running MAB or Symantec AV does not show up any viruses.

What I have tried so far:

I have reset Advanced Settings on IE8 with no success.

Running IE8 with no-addons also does not make any difference.

Finally, I have reinstalled IE8 with no success.

I am running XP Professional

Appreciate any help !

Open run type
CMD
type ipconfig /dnsflush
this will empty your dns cache and may help ! :thumbsup:
