Windows XP SP3 Resolving Host Issue
I have been have a lot of "Resolving Host" issues (hangs) lately on my Win XP SP3 system, required a reboot too get operational. After a lot of debugging the problem seems to be relate to Internet Security 2015 Firewall. I disabled the Bitdefender Firewall and enabled the Windows Firewall and the problem appears to be resolved.
It seems a lot of firewalls cause Resolving Host issues in Windows.
