I have a windows 7 64bit machine with 10gigs ram, Intel extreme board, etc. The problem I have been having is that every day I start the computer I have to flush the DNS in order to get on the internet. So as a test I installed a separate network card and still have the problem. I have updated everything and cannot figure out why I have to keep flushing the DNS. I have tried everything I can think of… Any suggestions?

The quick fix would be to have a startup script flush your DNS every time on startup :P

But seriously, try disabling and re-enabling the DNS service or clear out your browser cache. Other than those two ideas, I'm not going to be much of a help.

I wrote a .bat file that does just that but I really want to find out what is causing it in the first place.

Download following tool and run it BEFORE you flush DNS, so I have a chance to see what's wrong.

Please download MiniToolBox and run it.

Checkmark following boxes:
  • Report IE Proxy Settings
  • List content of Hosts
  • List IP configuration
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size
Click Go and post the result.

Xander27, stick with your new post as this one was from April 2011 and was never completed by the person asking for help.

I'll post a possible step to help there.
