    This issue is driving me mad! I have followed and tried all the solutions above. However I am still having to clear the DNS resolver cache as often as once every hour! The error drops my internet connection thus disconnecting Skype and any website or people I am working with. I am running Windows 7 on this dektop PC, the issue has only begun over the past few months. It does not seem to affect Windows 10 on my new laptop, yet!

    Surely there must be a permanent solution to this nonsense or does Google know best?
