Help with DNS settings/Host file and accessing certain websites

Today, when I tried to log on to DVDTalk, I got a cannot find server error, so I had a friend use the ping command to find DVDTalk's IP address, through which I am able to access the server, but I'm having problems posting and such. How can I clear my list of sites in my Host file so that it'll be forced to look up all the URLs again? Hopefully this will help solve my problem - if you have any other ideas, please post below. I can view the topics, but I am having problems replying and such.

I was having a similar problem, plus it was asking me to 'sign in' alot. I just deleted all of my temp file, all of my cookies, and defragged. Worked fine afterwards.

Thanks - clearing my temp files worked for some odd reason - never encountered this problem before.

Thanks again
