I can't figure out what happened.

I am writing this from my other computer on the same internet connection but my other machine can no longer get to www.experts-exchange.com. It could eariler today but I came back and it says it is just finding the site.

I have:

Checked for spybots.
Checked for viruses.
Cleared all temporay internet files, cookies and history.
Checked all security settings & privacy settings.
Checked Proxy settings.
Restored all default advanced settings.

I can get to any other website it seems.

I also cannot ping the Internet Addy.....but can from the working machine.

I checked my hosts files - nothing unusual there.
Restarted too.
Checked my startup items and nothing that should not be there.

Ping responds with "Unknown host" from the one machine.

Again...works fine from my other machine. And every other site has so far worked on the problem machine.

Hi diggisaur,
Got yourself into a spot of trouble, eh? :D
How about hosts/lmhosts under windows\system32\drivers\etc - anything there?
Have you checked for spyware, etc (the usual - I know YOU know this...)
How about your internet cache - clear it, along with your cookies...

I remembered that I had specified a manual IP for the DNS servers for a VPN tunnel. Although it had worked for weeks and was still working with every other site.....was weird. Went back to my ISPs DNS and every is fine. Forgot I had then there bur not sure why that one address stopped working from that other server.

That was weird - I swear I didn't see anything beginning with "I have:"...

Sorry about that...
