I head the following problem:
"Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following
action cannot be completed: clearing the dns cache"


I tried running cmd and to flush the cache manually (ipconfig /flushdns)
but had another error message:

"Coul not flush the DNS Resolver Cache: Function failed during execution"

Am running XP SP2.

Try disabling the DNS cache per
http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm and then re-enable it if you
determine you really need it.
