A few days ago, one of my clients was facing the following problem. He did not have access to a specific website through the Chrome browser, but, he had access to the same website via Internet Explorer and Firefox. In fact, when trying to access the specific website only, he received an error message from Chrome that says: "The website cannot be reached. Check your DNS and Proxy settings".
After checking the PC for malware, I thought the problem might be due to the stored cookies for that website. So I proceeded to delete all saved Chrome cookies that were related to this site and the problem was resolved.
