    If your ISP's DNS servers are causing a problem, you have four choices:

    1. Use IP addresses instead of URLs.
    2. Wait until your ISP is able to resolve the problem(s).
    3. Complain to your ISP.
    4. Use third-party DNS servers, like OpenDNS: http://www.opendns.com

    There is nothing that you can do about someone else's servers.

    On the other hand, if you provide a full, detailed description of your
    problem, you may discover it has nothing to do with a DNS server.

  7. What site? What link? Are you are using it in a Favorite?
    If so, the site may not want you to enter via a backdoor like that.
    Start at the root domain and navigate to wherever it is instead.
    If that works you could create a Favorite for the root.

    Could the fact that the different browsers are now being tracked in the
    "Temporary Internet Files" folder in Windows and possibly causing all of
    the no link issues? In the past, Windows did not care about any
    browsing History from Google Chrome (my second browser) and now it lists
    most history.
