  1. Flush DNS Cache


    The other day I tried to flush my DNS cache (no particular reason).
    command run as admin: ipconfig/flushdns
    result: Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.
    but with the command ipconfg/displaydns I still see 139 entries
    the service "DNS Client" is running (set to automatic)
    tried several times with the same result.
    my OS is Windows 10 Home Edition version 1909
    has anyone an idea why and how to remedy this?

    :)

    Flush DNS Cache

    Personally I disable the service using Autoruns before rebooting and flushing then re-enable the service.

    Or else I use Hostsman:

  4. Flush DNS Cache

    Flush DNS Cache

    yes, I do have quite a number of entrie is my hosts file; all pointing at my computer : 127.0.0.1
    and I see these entries reappear in the DNS cache but alse other entries NOT in the hosts file with
    entries pointing to existing websites.
    these are not flushed by the command ipconfig /flushdns
    Should I delete all entries in the hosts file, flush dns and then rewrite the hosts file?
