My laptop is only 3 months old, windows 8, and It says I'm connected to my network with 4 bars. When I load up sites it does without any problems but then I go to do anything and it says site not responding. Every site it does this, even being right next to the router. I go to yahoo to check my email and it loads my inbox, but as soon as I go to open an email it says yahoo not responding! Very frustrated considering it has been fine up to this point
Any help would be appreciated, I'm about ready to brake the laptop out of frustration!

Hello,

Try this 1

1) Hold the "Windows key" and press the "R" key. "Run" will be opened.

Type cmd and press Enter. "Command Prompt" will be opened.

Now enter the below command

ipconfig /flushdns --> Press Enter.

2) Try deleting all the cookies etc

For Internet Explorer :

For Firefox :

will be opened. In "Time range to clear", select "Everything" from the

drop-down menu. Now select all the options under "Details" and click on

"Clear Now".

3) Open the browser without add-ons.

For Internet Explorer :

Right-click on the "Internet Explorer" icon --> Select the option "Start without

The browser is windows Internet explorer, for example I go to yahoo mail try to sign in and at the bottom of the page it says yahoo.com is not responding and the icon at the top I spinning trying to work. It seems that I can go to any search engine no problem but as soon as I go to a site it says the same thing at the bottom
