    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

    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.
