it is because you are using crack edition. Get a original edition then you will be able to connect. using crakc windows server is illegal.

use nslookup first. Use ip address it returns in address line of browser.
If fails (and it is really the correct IP address) then virus.

if nslookup returned Preffered DNS server address that u use.
When u type that IP in the rowser it returned nothing. Then you need to tell your isp to fix their dns.
