    Can I just type that in "Run"?

    The thing is that I'm having a hard time connecting to a tracker.
    And they say that the thing to do is to open a command prompt and type in 'ipconfig/flushdns'.

    Is it save for me to do this in "Run"?
    I already tried typing in ipconfig and that only opened up a dos window for like a sec.

    And what exactly does this ipconfig/flushdns do?

    hmm...asspie

    Ya its safe to do it in Run, It clears the DNS cache.

    yes it works from run. but if any errors come up or anything then it won't tell you them. the dos window just instantly closes. with a command prompt it all stays there for you to read.

    or you could use a batch file with a pause command in it
    Code:
    ipconfig /flushdns
    pause
