acquiring web pages needs two goes

  awest3 06 Jul 11

I seem to have acquired a problem with access to web pages. Frequently, but not always, when I click on a site or a new page within a site, all I get is 'awaiting response' if I go back to the previous page ( or out of the site then back in again) It all works first time.

Could this be a problem with IE9.?

Try going to comand prompt and typing in ipconfig /flushdns and press enter on the keyboard.

It should tell you that the DNS cache has been flushed,If so reboot and see if it makes any difference.

Interesting...It seems to have made a difference Thank you.

I'll keep checking and posta again if the solution seems permanent.

Thanks again

I'd be grateful for any other ideas.
