    DNS Client Service will not start


    If I open the DNS Client Service (Dnscache) in Services.msc, the Startup Type drop down box is greyed out, so I cannot change the startup type. It was disabled and I wanted to change it to Automatic but cannot from the Services utility. So I changed the Start value to 2 in the Registry for the Dnscache service. This changes the startup type to Automatic (Trigger Start) as shown in Services. However, trying to start it produces the Error 1058: "The service cannot be started because it is disabled or it has no enabled devices associated with it."

    Steps I have done so far:
    1. Ran sfc /scannow
    2. Checked permissions on the relevant registry keys compared to another (working) Windows 10 computer.
    3. Replaced the file C:\windows\system32\dnsrslvr.dll with one from another (working) Windows 10 computer.
    4. Checked the dependent services and drivers are running.
    5. Checked the registry values and sub keys for HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Dnscache

    I am out of ideas. Any help to fix the permissions and get this working will be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Roy

    Change DNS on client

    avoiding manual intervention on all clients?
    Thanks

  4. my windows 10 DNS client service is graid out

    Browser /connection security, hosts file and DNS service

    You're saying that Open DNS(and other services like it) house their own list of known 'bad' sites, and by using their DNS servers, it will filter out sites based on that list?

    Would you believe I was already using Open DNS servers.
    This means the hosts file is moot?

    And furthering that, if there's any bespoke sites I want to manually add, I could do it through my router directly.

    Thus I can empty my local hosts file and turn my DNS service back on?
