Unhappy DNS error occurred. Server cannot be found. The link may be broken.
Please help I am so frustrated I would very much like to throw my computer out the window. (joke) However I WOULD very much like to stop getting this message everywhere I try to go on the internet. Well...for example:
The webpage "http://www.yahoo.com" cannot be found DNS error occurred. Server cannot be found. The link may be broken.

The webpage "login.facebook.com" cannot be found DNS error occurred. Server cannot be found. The link may be broken.

ok and of course when I just tried to search google in my web browser it actually came up--BUT it didn't a few minutes ago. It had the exact same error message. Suffice to say it seems intermittent at this point. I try and try again and sometimes the sites will come up but most of the time I am getting these same messages as stated above. Extremely frustrating and I do not know that much about computers. I thought I did until this error. I tried reading the other threads about this error and could not fully understand what the answers were saying. Too technical for me. I have Windows Vista Ultimate edition. My computer is connected to a Lynksys Router from another room. I have the adapter here in my room (well duh...see? I really don't know anything other than that!) Please help...even though it may be a frustrating step by step process with me I would very much like to LEARN how to resolve this issue so maybe I can fix it myself in the future....should it ever happen again. The only thing different I have done lately is download and install "Malwarebytes' Anti-malware" and "Piriform CCleaner". Though from what I was reading is this a router issue??? Please help. I don't even know if I posted this thread in the right forum.
