    DNS Cache


    I have a site that was pointed to shopify, and then closed the store. Now when I try to load the new site, it always directs to the closed shopify site. If I do a dns reset using ipconfig /flushdns it will work for a while, but then always reverts back. So I have to reset many times per day.
    Any ideas on how to get this setup so that the dns is not changing..?
    thanks
    james

  2. I can't log into my Microsoft account or use the Store since Anniversary Update

    There is no notification about this problem. I tried changing my DNS to Google's DNS, flushed
    my DNS cache
    & nothing changed. I then tried Open DNS, flushed
    my DNS cache
    & still nothing. I don't know what else to try to fix this issue beyond doing a clean install.

  3. Boot bug and DNS CLIENT event BUG?

    Try disabling DNS client.

    To start View your dns cache, always good to know what is in there which may be helpful

    ipconfig /displaydns In elevated command

    Then clear your dns cache

    To clear your DNS cache

    >Click Start.

    >Elevated CMD

    >Run the following command: ipconfig /flushdns.

    Disable DNS Cache

    >R-click Start

    >Run>Service.msc

    >Scroll to DNS Client

    >Stop and disable.

    your store apps will not work.

    Myself I never Enable DNS Client and is always disabled. I don't use store or apps.

    Hi jamesk and welcome to Tenforums.

    Please advise what browser(s) you are using and uninstall all toolbars in all of them.

    Let's check for infection
    -download and run RKILL
    This is a little program that will stop any malicious running processes temporarily until next boot. After running, it places a text file on your desktop - paste that info here.

    - download, install and run Malwarebytes Antimalware Free
    Update the definitions and go into settings and select the box to scan for Rootkits as well as everything else that is already checked. Do a custom scan and select your entire C: drive.

    Let us know if it finds anything. Reboot if asked to. If you do reboot, run RKILL again.

    Depending on your response, I'll give you next steps.

    Everything looks good except this. What are you using for a firewall? Do you have a 3rd-party firewall installed? If not, you will need to edit the registry and change that to "1". (Well, I would try turning it on through Windows, before I would edit the registry....)

    Something may have messed with your hosts file. That is a system file that will redirect any IP address to another, hard coded. Check these instructions to view/edit the system hosts file. There may be something in there causing you problems. Beginner Geek: How To Edit Your Hosts File

    This is what a plain vanilla hosts file should look like. This is straight off my desktop, just upgraded to 11099.

    It is in this folder.... C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc. Filename is "hosts". You can open it with Notepad.

    If there were any changes to a plain vanilla Hosts file, RKILL would have listed that in the report.

    I have a site using the ip 162.255.118.46 but it will always switch back to the shopify store ip.... 23.227.38.32
    I have tried shutting down the DNS Client, but it always starts back up..
    Nothing showed up on the malware scan.

    What browsers are installed on the system?
    Do you have Ccleaner installed?

    Seems there are some issues with that IP
    https://www.virustotal.com/en/ip-add...6/information/

    Better get Malwarebytes Antiexploit installed on your system, and don't turn the firewall off!

    Please advise what browser(s) you are using and uninstall all toolbars in all of them.

    Check your browser's shortcuts under settings, there should be some links to the old site being triggered.

    Or maybe a redirect page, because as of now it returns 404 and the only running site is under 23.227.38.32 which is the new site for shopify...
