You can use a function from Microsoft's "dnsapi.dll". This will allow you to do this completely programmatically:

using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
private static extern UInt32 DnsFlushResolverCache ();
public static void FlushMyCache()
    UInt32 result = DnsFlushResolverCache();

Good luck,

Thank you Jose Amilcar !!! :) Is there any other method to flush DNS... Can we Flush DNS using any other InBuild Component or DLL or Library of .NET Framework :)
