    Can you go back with system restore to a few days before the problem?

    This is a problem that has been given a hot fix in one of the SPs. Are you current with the SPs?

    Go to computer icon on desktop, right click then properties. Does it show SPs?

    Assume that you bought Vista when it first came out.
    As time went on Microsoft sent updates. Then as more time passed, they put all the updates and more in one big update. It was called sp1. The same happend with the sp2 package. You can see this information on properties of your computer icon.

    If you have no SPs, that can be the problem.

    Go to search

    go to dns client
    What do you see: automatic, off etc?
    It should be automatic and started
