    Hi all.
    This is my first post here, I hope someone can help with this problem.

    OK. Up until 2 weeks ago I was able to access the website www.24surfpro.com with no problem at all. Now I cannot access it with any normal browser or from any network with my laptop, I just get time outs or 'HOST NOT ACCESSIBLE' errors in the case of firefox. ( I can still access it throught torpark and through web based proxies like vtunnel etc..)

    I cannot remember changing any settings that might have this effect, although It's not impossible to believe that I might have inadvertadly done something stupid after a couple of beers at some point!:rolleyes:


    Any ideas?


    OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Professional
    Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600
    System Manufacturer Acer
    System Model Aspire 5500

    Hi Etaf, thanks for the reply.:)

    I have no restricted sites.

    Maybe I should have been a bit clearer but this is happening on any network (any one of 5 different isps that I've tried in three different locations) and from any browser (firefox, ie, opera, ace explorer, netscape) other than those going through a proxy it would seem. My first thought was the hosts file but I have checked it and eliminated it I think (removed it from the loop by changing the name).

    I am convinced the problem is local to my machine and probably has a rediculously simple solution but it does not appear to be the hosts file as far as I can make out, if there is still a possibility that it is the host file I would love to be proved wrong.... it's really annoying me!:confused: .

    Have you tried to flush the DNS cache?
    Start> Run> type: cmd then hit OK.
    At the command prompt, type: ipconfig /flushdns then hit Enter.
    You should receive the message that they were flushed successfully.

    Thanks Augie65, no I hadn't thought of that.
    I tried it with and without a reboot, it didn't work though.
