I hope you can help me! I have an XP machine and use a dialup connection. 9 times out of 10 Internet Explorer will not find the DNS server and says I am not connected to the internet even though I have connected just seconds before.
I did have some virus / spyware issues that a friend helped me to clean up, but now I have problems getting IE to connect. Usually, the first time I run IE after rebooting and then connecting to the internet it will work, but successive sessions of IE (using the same connection - i.e. I have not disconnected the dial-up session) will not find the DNS.
I thought upgrading from IE6 to IE7 would help, but I am still using a friend's PC to get a reliable internet connection!
My friend suggested to try turning off my firewall and connect, but that didn't work either.
Help! What do I do now?
