What is 'Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): The server could not be found'

Chrome was working fine earlier in the day but now half the pages I try to access get this error message and the pages no longer load.
Some of the pages affected are
yahoo mail
yahoo groups
devian art
I'm having to keep going back to Firefox to check my e-mail and when I come across a page that won't load in Chrome.

I am experiencing this on a Wireless and a Wired connection.
Another Wired connection works fine.
Happens in IE7, GC, Safari and FF3.
Systems: VistaUltimate32bit and WXP-SP3.
Tried changing the Norton Firewall allow settings for GC and IE7, but does not resolve the issue.
Please, always include the version of Chrome in bug reports. (Click on the spanner icon on the top-right and select "About Google Chrome")
Go to :
Options->Under the Hood->Change proxy settings->LAN Settings -> Automatic Configuration -> Automatically detect settings = ON
Close GC
It should load the page(s) as expected.
Resolved on WXP-SP3 not running GC.
Turn OFF Windows Firewall. Last MS Update must have turned it ON.
i am still get "Error 105"
Ok i am having this problem full stop on all three browsers, i have chrome, IE8, firefox. I am using a wifi connection which is good, and i can load a few programs like gmail and yahoo, and google search but anything else i can not, things like forum pages basically all links i click on. I turned off computer taken battery out, turned off my antivirus as well as firewall. I could not afford to replace me apple when it was stollen so i have a new windows computer! i really miss my apple it just works.
Any advice on this would be appreciated. The browsers were loading fine yesterday, i have downloaded some new programs but all checked for viruses and all from trusted sources, e.g windows, google, firefox.
