Do understand XP support is about to end. Please do not wait until then to upgrade or replace your computer with one that supports modern (and secure) operating systems.

I had thought about that, Bill.  The following would take it a step further. 

Anna, please do the following to flush your DNS cache and restore the HOSTS file:

Please copy/paste the lines in bold below to Notepad:

@Echo on
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0


Save as flush.bat to your desktop.
Double-click flush.bat file to run it. Your computer will reboot.

Note:  For Windows Vista or Windows 7, right-click flush.bat and select "Run as Administrator".
