Recently I have had a lot of trouble contacting various web sites whether it be live.com,google or my bank with the usual
response that '---------- is not responding'.
Can anyone confirm please that this is just the amount of traffic that these sites are encountering or is it anything to do with my computer.
How they are all busy at the same time on one particular day is beyond me or is it something to do with the server?.
I regularly clean my registery etc with CCcleaner and the like.
Is anyone else having this problem
Thank you.

This site may be what you're looking for: http://www.downforev...neorjustme.com/

However, it sounds like your Internet Service Provider (ISP) has DNS (Domain Name Server) issues. You might want to consider alternatives like OpenDNS or Google Public DNS

Yes, please do what Admin advised.


A registry cleaner will not increase your system's speed or performance, and has the potential to break your registry to the point that your PC is no longer bootable. Yes it may clean any orphaned keys/values present, but you won't notice a difference in system speed. The only difference you'll notice is when you actually search in your registry.
Also, if you clean the registry frequently, it will become more fragmented over time, which may actually slow down your system's performance.
