Good morning Joe,

 

computer is running fine, webpages are loading quickly  :)

 

No other errors!

 

Further up  123Runner  was suggesting to reboot the computer. Is that not the same like turning it off and then on again?

What do I have to do to clean the DNS cache?

 

Thanks again, Peter

Hello Peter,

An Happy Easter.

 

Rebooting an restarting turning on an off  are all pretty much one in the same, its helpful to do that once in a while specifically if you leave the computer on all the time.

 

We already cleared the DNS when we did Minitoolbox

 

Thanks

Joe :)

As Zep516 stated, a reboot and a on/off are very close to being the same. A reboot turns the computer off and it restarts on it's own. When you turn it off and then on all that happens is the computer turns itself off and you need to physically push the power switch/ on button to start it up again.

Thanks for your replies guys. My computer is rarely on for more than 4 hours at a time.
