Hi Everyone:
Don't know weather this is a Vista problem or a ISP problem, but all day today almost every time I click on a link, I get a page that says, "DNS Lookup Error". Most of the time I can refresh the page and then the page shows up as it was suppose to in the first place. But it is happening more and more and I can't figure out weather it is my OS or my Satellite Internet Provider. We have had either cloudy weather or rainy weather here for the last 2-3 days, so I am wondering could it just be that the signals are not getting through the clouds and causing this error message. Anyone with any idea if it could be caused by Vista if it maybe just a bad connection because of clouds? Or other another cause? I have run both my AVAST and my SUPERAntiSpyware and nothing shows up.
