    I'll give it a go when I'm in front of that machine on Wednesday.

    Been having a good long hard think about this one over the weekend (as you do lol!) and am thinking if I can't get this working pretty fast, I am going to reimage the PC from the one next to it that IS working. It's in a primary school where I only go 3 hours each week, so time is of the essence is getting this resolved.

    Well just to round this thread off I cloned the working PC yesterday and re-imaged the non-working PC. It worked on the internet fine. I am convinced that something screwed up in the registry or some obscure settings box when I upgraded from IE6 to IE8 but I will never know what.

    Thanks to all who suggested diagnostics to try and pinpoint the problem - at any rate I've learned a bit more about DNS and what things to try if it happens again.

    It was in a Reception classroom and the teacher was so pleased she gave me a sticker :-) Gotta love my job!

    1. Reset the hosts file back to default ( hosts file afaik over rides DNS Settings ) --> How to Reset Hosts File to Default in Windows XP, Vista and 7? - Tweaking with Vishal

    2. Reset Winsocks ( Windows Sockets ) to defaults which you can do using the Netsh command(s) -->Reset Winsock

    Repair/Reset Winsock settings

    3. Reset TCP/IP Stack --> How to reset Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

    4. Update the network card driver for the relevant network adapter in question.

    NOTE -- This can be done in any order and I am not saying do the items in the order I have posted them in. I know you have re imaged the pc already but just thought it may come in handy.

    Also if none of the above resolves it then re imaging is generally the quicker option and easier.

    Will bear these in mind for the future, yeah it will always bug me that I never got to the bottom of this and if I encounter the problem another time, I'll check back for these resets.
