    Lost connection to DNS server...


    Hello,
    This happened after desinstalling Bittorrent which was bugging...
    It's on my PC, using ethernet, my laptop and my phones connect perfectly (wifi)
    The troubleshooter says : "computer appears to be correctly configured but the device Detected or resource (DNS server) is not responding"
    I tried everything advised on the support.microsoft page : Try these things first to help you fix or narrow down the connection problem, but to no avail
    Dunno where to go now..... my hope is in you !!!!!

    Go to the DNS settings of your Ethernet connection.

    1) Go to Network Connections
    2) Double click Ethernet
    3) Double click Internet Protocol Version 4
    4) The orange box all the way on the right in the picture. I'm using some custom DNS server, I don't even remember what it is. Whoops. I double clicked my Ethernet options; I'm using WiFi on this PC. The current DNS I'm using is: 9.9.9.9 (I have no clue what this one is either. I forget things), and the alternate I'm using is: Google's DNS: 8.8.8.8
    5) Press the OKs and see if the internet works. If not, restart the computer and see if the internet works.

    Edit:
    9.9.9.9 DNS: 9.9.9.9 dns - Search

    Thanks pepanee, I first tried with the 8s, then saw your updated picture and tried with both the 9s and the 8s
    Restarted after both tries... but I'm back to square one

    FreeBooter : Uninstall the Ethernet network adapter driver and restart. is also part of Microsoft's advice - did not work for me

    I wonder whether it's some virus...
    Malwarebytes quarantined 2 items and Avast gives a clean bill... but still...
