Daina can't get on Aimgirl. The last few days every time she tries to the site she gets this:



she has tried deleting cookies, files, history, as well as run spyware doctor etc.

she said that Google used to be the same way but now google works.

any ideas on what she should do?

ipconfig /flushdns

Hm.
I asked my friend and he said to just update the flash player.
Poor Daina! sad.gif

Update the flash player...

Your friends an idiot. Flash player HAS NOTHING to do with not being able to see the site. david0mp gave the correct answer.

If flushing the DNS cache doesn't help, it could be a routing problem, but there's not usually much you can do to fix that other than asking your ISP or just waiting

In a command prompt, try "tracert www.aimgirl.com" and post the results

Daina's results:

"Unable to resolve target system name www.aimgirl.com."

Open a command prompt and type "ipconfig /all" (without the quotes) and post the results. It may be a problem with your dns settings. If you fell uncomfortable posting all your settings, you can just post the DNS addresses.

In that case it's a DNS problem. Usually, DNS problems resolve themselves pretty quickly, as updates propogate across nameservers. I'd suggest your friend contact her ISP, because they might be better able to resolve the problem.

Or she can go with a more reliable DNS server.

Ok, I'm on my school's computer, so I'll just sum up my situation.

A guy on my dance forum concluded I definitely have a DNS problem. He told me to unplug my router, shut my computer off for about 30 minutes, then try to plug everything back in.

I'll attempt that. Hopefully I'll be able to come back soon enough! I need to go through everything I missed. I'm barely surviving without this forum...I know...that's sad lol
