    Can you do a nslookup to any other website. ?
    etc. In command prompt type
    nslookup <hotmail.com>

    Does it return with the IP Address of the site

    I had this before but cant remeber how I got rid of it. It is a caching issue since by doing the nslookup you DNS resolution worksfine. Try manual going and delete your temporary Internet files from Explorer. You will propably find that some of them are set to read only....Give it ago and let me know

    Try opening a command prompt and doing a couple of clearing operations.

    arp -d *

    This clears the ARP cache.

    ipconfig /flushdns

    This clears the DNS cache.

    What i mean by manualy is, going itno explorer and delete the from your profile. The other way of doing it is in your internet Options to clear temporary files, however I gfound in the past that that doesn't work at all times.What I meant by read only is, if a file is read only then you cant execute anything from it. So lets say your home page is set to read only, you wont beable to go from it any where else.- Enough of that now...
    What is the machine IP setting and then as the machine your connecting through.
    In command prompt , do a tracert to www.turners.co.nz and send me the reply.
