Up to about two weeks ago I had also been unable to connect to http://www.vauxhallviva.com for about 2 months, maybe longer. No other web sites was affected. I tried using both Internet Explorer (message DNS error occurred. Server cannot be found) and Firefox (message Firefox can't find the server at http://www.vauxhallviva.com) ,and following the suggested procedures like clearing caches, deleting the “www.vauxhallviva.com” cookie and disabling the firewall without effect. Eventually my friendly neighbourhood guru (thanks Bill) sorted out the problem – by finding a posting on a TalkTalk forum, from HB Peter, who had the same problem in May of this year, which was fixed by changing from a TalkTalk DNS address to an “open” DNS address. Bill made a similar change for me and - problem solved.

My thanks to HBPeter

Later I find that that TalkTalk seem to have only two pairs of DNS addresses so it could be a wider problem.

Best thing I ever did in my whole life was ditch TalkTalk - if they put as much effort into their systems and customer care as they do advertising they might do better.
Oh and even after settling a final account that quite frankly stuck in my throat, they still pursued me via balifs on several occassions for money I didn't owe them... I had to get copy cheques from my bank etc. to prevent the nice debt collecting people from taking my telly away !! Don't get me started !!! :evil:
