I am running a PC with Windows XP. It is connected to another PC on a simple network and shares its internet access.
The PC in question randomly displays the 'page cannot be displayed' error on numerous web pages, they all work OK on the other PC. If I hit refresh a few times they seem to come good.
I have run spybot, ad-aware, AVG, Xsoft etc etc and nothing. I have upgraded to Internet explorer 7 and tried Firefox, the same problem still exists. I have deleted and re-added all winsock entries from the registry, nothing seems to have made a difference.
I am suspecting a DNS problem, i don't seem to have connection problems using just the IP, but its hard to say for sure as the sites seem to have the problem randomly.

Any suggestions ???
