Did you try the "net stop" above?  I know it seems wrong, but did you make 
sure?  Another way is to try "nslookup" and see if changing DNS within 
nslookup works.  When you change DNS in the IP properties, it flushes the 
DNS cache, and I think that is what's actually fixing it.  And if you have a 
occasional problem that breaks the cache on one windows machine, it will 
also do it to others.
