Flushing a computer's DNS cache

May 20, 2012 by SaraSX
I want to force my computer to find the new DNS information for a website, since I’m not able to see updates done on specific websites. I was advised to flush my computer’s DNS cache, but I don’t know how to. Can somebody tell me how to flush my computer’s DNS cache? Note that I have Windows OS
Thank you
