All of us love surfing the internet from our computer and if we come across problems like slow browsing and others, it really bothers us for a while until it gets fixed. Well, sometimes these problems arise due to the problems on the servers of your internet service providers while sometimes these problems occur to some problems in your web browser or on your computer. One of the causes of this problem is the DNS or DNS cache which gets saved while we are surfing the internet on a web browser. This is responsible for our online connections and it saves important stuff such as cookies, passwords, emails, and other stuff which we enter in our web browser. Sometimes this cache contains errors and we need to flush it. In this article, I am going to show you how to flush your DNS in Windows 7.
A step-by-step guide to Flush DNS in Windows 7:
Note: Here is one thing that you need to know before reading this guide that this is specifically for the users of Windows 7. If you are some other operating system such as Windows 10 or 8, you can check the respective guides on our website.
- If you are familiar with the run command which is used to run programs directly on our computer then run it by pressing the CTRL+R on your keyboard.
- Once the command has opened, in the search bar, type these keywords to open the flushing command ‘IPCONFIG/FLUSHDNS’.
- Once you have run it, the flushing process of your DNS cache will start and it will be done within a matter of few seconds.
- Once it is done, your DNS has been flushed successfully.
