This bit a lot of people, including my home PC. As usual the good folks at ESET posted the correct fix! I had tried several Microsoft tools they suggested with no luck.  Someone in a Microsoft forum also came up with the correct answer which is shown here. Users should not have had to go into their network settings to do this. Many people did not know the proper steps to get to the DNS dialog box.
