      When trying to visit google.com, you get this error:


      The server at http://www.google.co.nz can’t be found because the DNS look-up failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website’s name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network.

      This is actually an issue with your computers DNS service, rather than the website, router or ISP as you might expect. I’m not sure why it happens or why it just seems to effect Google, but I know how to fix it.

      To fix this, click the Start menu and type services.msc, then press enter. Then find the DNS Client service, right click it and click restart.

      The DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN error will now be fixed and you will be able to visit google.com
