ok did all you asked, whats very weird is that google.com links WORK, however google.co.uk (im in the uk) don't work! The error message I get with DNS flushing is:

"Could not flush the DNS Resolver Cache: Function failed during execution"

This really is getting weird! I don't understand how google.com works, but google.co.uk doesn't! :)

"Could not flush the DNS Resolver Cache: Function failed during execution"


Thats the culprit right there!

That error message tells me (and you :) ) that the DNS service is disabled in windows.

Do the following:

Goto start, click Run, in run-box, type: services.cms
Find DNS client in the list
Right-click DNS services, choose properties
Click the general tab, set to automatic in the start-up list.
Click start, apply and ok your way out.

Reboot (just to make sure its applied)

See how it goes.

Regards Abydos

ok, well I've resolved that DNS issue, rebooted, flushed it and rebooted again, but I'm afraid it's made not difference to the redirecting issue. :) I'm beginning to think I may need to throw the laptop through the window!!! :)

Sorry for the dual post... I was just wondering if you (or anyone else) have any new thinkings as to what's going on with my laptop? :)
