    ok, i have this stupid shdoclc.dll /dnserror AGAIN.

    I've seen this before. I've went through all the patches, suggestoins, and fixes for this tool. I posted a similar issue else where on this forum. None of it works. The only thing i havent tried has been reformatting the machine. I really really really dont want to have to do this. This computer is part of a network and an integral part of everyday function for a business. Please help me!! I have tried all suggestions in my other post. and in posts of others. I have downloaded a fix for the tool and still it doesnt work. I also checked microsoft for any help. NONE OF IT HELPED. Please help

    Thanks

    Hi lonesome_wolf,Could just be a cashe problem.Have you tried the deltree command?How about doing a search for a file called Host,(not host sam,this is a sample file)if you find it,open it and delete all the web page entries.One more thing,check for a damage wsock32 file,using SFC.

    Describe to me the "Deltree" thing. What do i delete?...

    I've already tried restoring copies of all winsock files. and pretty much any other file i could think of

    Lonesome' it really doesn't help to tell us you've tried "all" the fixes without being specific about what you've tried. Beyond "all" there is nothing...

    Does this error occur on every site visited, or just some?

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q175722

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q241344

    If it is just some sites, do a Find Files search for HOSTS. If you find one with no extension (not Hosts.sam) in the Windows directory, rename it to GHOSTS

    This file is used for accelerated DNS resolution by associating IPs with Domain Names -- when the IP changes a "page cannot be displayed" or "unable to connect" error results.

    Have you tried deleting the Winsock keys in the registry as you apparently did successfully here?

    For a more extensive method see step 13 of the "page cannot be displayed" MS link
