Hello all, new to the site here, seems nice. I'm here because I am having major difficulties with DNS errors, it has gotten to where I can barely navigate anywhere. I have tried normal adware scans and norton antivirus which got some things but the DNS errors keep happening very frequently. Any help would be greatly appreciated I have a lot of work to do haha! Here is my hijackthis log:

Hi Joe, welcome to DaniWeb :)

I don't see anything overtly malicious in your HJT log. Can you please give us more details on the DNS problems? Having the full and exact description of the error(s) would be helpful.

Also- I see that you have Norton's firewall installed. When troubleshooting any network-related issue, the first thing you need to do is to completely disable any firewall software (including XP's built-in ICF/ICS features). Simply choosing the "Disable" option in the firewall program's settings/preferences rarely turns the firewall off entirely; you will need to deselect the preference setting that tells the firewall to automatically start when Windows boots, and then restart the computers. After reboot, verify that the firewall is indeed disabled.
Keep your firewalls dropped until you get things working.

ok I think I turned off all firewalls, but I am not sure. To better describe what happens, I get this error message in IE: Cannot find server or DNS error. I get a similar message in firefox too, but its working for the moment which is how im posting this now haha! Anyway, its sporadic, at times pages load almost normally, but it never lasts long, soon I try to open a page and get the aforementioned error. Additionally, I cannot tell when it will happen, sometimes after a computer restart I try to open my home page and it gives me the error right away. Other times, a little later in the session. I have run ewido anti-malware, spybot, spyblaster, adaware se, norton, and windows defender so I think youre right when you say its clean in that regard. If I need to post this in another forum please let me know. There isnt too much more information I can give, except that I had to add some registry values to repair windows firewall, so I could get into the settings to deactivate it, but im not sure if that was related to this problem.

Edit: noticed something else: sometimes when a site loads normally, some banner ads in the site don't appear, instead showing the same "Cannot find server or DNS error" as when a page dosen't load in the first place.

new symptom: It seems that someone else had a similar problem, so I ran IEFix and it seemed to clear it up a bit. Now I only get errors when Norton Internet Worm Protection is turned on, so currently Im operating with all firewalls off. This probably isnt under the pervue of this forum any longer, so where should I go from here?

You're good here for now, as the problem still seems to be a security issue.

Now I only get errors when Norton Internet Worm Protection is turned on

If you're fairly confident that that's the case, we should start looking at Norton's behaviour. Norton is known to suffer from glitches which will cause all sorts of different connection/access problems, but it could also be that Norton is just configured a little to "tightly" and some of its settings (Program Control, perhaps) need to be adjusted.

Can you find any possibly helpful/relevant information in Norton's activity logs? If so, post that info here.

Glad I got this quickly, it seems I jumped the gun on that one. Here is what I know now: It worked for a while (longest stretch in the past few days) but I havent reactivated it and the problem is back to its old frequency. Additionally, when I type in a sites IP address I get there no problem. If you like, tell me which logfiles to post and I will do so.

Edit: Heres my norton browser configuration log:, seemed odd that it blocked 1:
