I get a reply that this command needs an elevation. I thought perhaps this meant that I needed to be signed in as administrator and I am so obviously that guess was incorrect.
Then i thought perhaps i should try it in caps. NOT

I have used this in the past to clear things up so i would not get the message that there is a problem with my connection when there is not when i try clicking on links. It does not occur even half the time but it is annoying just the same. Occasionally I will use cleanup and flush that way and believe it or not while that message is on the screen another screen will pop up with the link I was trying to obtain.
I clean up everyday and also scan for cooties.

Thank you, I just do not understand what I am doing differently that the command gives me that reply. I am not using Vista not XP could that be the challenge ???

If you are using the command prompt, it's probably that which needs 'elevating', not the user account you're currently using. Right-click the command-prompt shortcut and select "Run as administrator", then type your flush DNS command.
