When working on the Internet – when trying to download any web pages - there are often all sorts of "overlays– - from the message The server was not found. It is impossible to display the page before the appearance – instead of a web page - of some gibberish. Of course, most of these problems are caused by temporary problems with the provider's server or the website hoster.

However, often in such cases, clearing the DNS resolver cache with the ipconfig /flushdns command helps.

To do this:
- click Start –> Run... -> Run the program -> cmd -> OK;
- switch (if necessary) the keyboard layout to EN;
- after inviting system C:\Documents and Settings\Username> enter ipconfig /flushdns, click;
- DNS resolver cache will be reset:

C:\Documents and Settings\Admin>ipconfig /flushdns
Configuring the IP Protocol for Windows
DNS resolver cache has been successfully reset.
C:\Documents and Settings\Admin>

Notes
1. The DNS Client service (Dnscache) must be enabled.
This service resolves DNS names to addresses for this computer and places them in the cache. If the service is stopped, DNS names cannot be resolved and the directory service cannot be hosted Active Directorycontrollers of the domain. If this service is not allowed, it will not be possible to start any explicitly dependent services.
The startup type (by default) is Auto.
Executable file – C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k NetworkService.

If the Dnscache service is not enabled, when you try to clear the DNS resolver cache, you will receive a message DNS resolver cache cannot be cleared: Function execution error.

2. How to enable the DNS Client service:
- click Start –> Settings -> Control Panel -> Administration –> Services;
– in the window that opens Services in the Services list (local) highlight the DNS client service;
- click Start the service.

3. How to set the DNS client startup type for the service - Auto:
- click Start –> Settings -> Control Panel -> Administration –> Services;
– in the window that opens Services in the Services list (local) highlight the DNS client service;
- double-click the left mouse button to open the DNS Client (Local Computer) - Properties window (or right-click to open the context menu from which select Properties);
- on the tab General in the drop-down list Select the startup type Auto -> OK;
- close the window Services.

4. If you have no time/laziness to deal with clearing the DNS resolver cache, download and unzip the file flushdns.zip.
Run the flushdns.bat file.
