Can't search with the search function

By mmbc_voltron ·
On IE when you hit the search button it brings up a search function on the left.
Everyone in my office can't connect to that site.
I have posted elsewhere and they thought it was spyware or somthing along the lines of that, so I ran spybot and adware and nothing.
The only work around I have
found is to stop and re-start the DNS server. But that only works for a short period. Why is it that everyone in the office can't connect to the
search engine for msn. But if I restart (stop and start
the services)on the DNS server people can use the search function.

Maybe you should look on your DNS server to see what the problem is....obviously there is a problem there.

Try entering (, the IE address bar. If this brings up the page the problem is with the ISP DNS server. Also, try PING and PING the IP addresses shown here.Why stopping and restarting your internal DNS service temportarily repairs the problem indicates your internal and external namespace are being combined--something you shouldn't be doing.

check with your internet provider, you should have at least two dns servers that you can configure for clients. Configure the primary (to itself) and secondary dns server on the dns server provide by isp. ( this is done in the ipconfiguration).
once your have done this. open the dns configuration under the properties you should have a section for forwards. make sure the first and second are the dns server provided by your isp.
Clear the cache on the dns server adn you should be fine.
