    Well, I know this isn't related at all to some people. But when I was about to ask how to fix my computer here, because it can't access any microsoft sites even hotmail, I found a fix ! [​IMG]

    So I found this solution online. Hope this helps someone with the common problem. [​IMG]

    Only tried on an XP though. [​IMG]

    First method:
    1)Start --> Run --> type cmd then Enter. Then enter this command on the Command Prompt:
    ipconfig /flushdns and press "Enter".

    Try opening Microsoft website now.

    Second method:
    If it still persists:
    Go to Start --> Run --> type services.msc and right-click on "DNS Client" and select "Stop".

    Click on the below link and download the file.
    Code:

    Happy fixing ! Worked on mine. [​IMG]

    For one thing, I thought the flushdns command was already well known. [​IMG]

    And so I thought, but it didn't work on mine, so I needed to find another way. [​IMG]
