Invalid URL

Occasionally, while “surfing the web”, I get this annoying error message.  It comes up for Facebook, Google, and today, Vimeo.  The error message looks something like this:

Invalid URL

The requested URL “/video/67664300”, is invalid.

Reference #9.8cc21508.1251069229.0

There is no obvious reason or fix for this that I found, until today.  This forum nailed it: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=372083

I’ll save you the trouble of reading the entire page.  The fix is simply to open up a command prompt (Windows Key+ r, type “cmd”) and at the command prompt, type:  ipconfig /flushdns

The fix is instant and it will go to the site that you were attempting to reach.
