    Windows itself does not change DNS provider itself, malware mostly does. Sorry I see no reason to use this software at all, the problem is that if you're infected and use this software there is no guarantee that it works better as Windows own mechanism.

    I not suggest to use this software and instead try to change (if possible) your DNS server on your router directly to disallow manipulations on a software level.

    Beside of that, what users could expect from some apps from a developer, who even didn't check his products for errors and misspellings?!

    Take a close look at the screen shot and the product page on his website!

    A nice suggestion, I have seen many people lately, whose DNS kept changing, no malware involved, I will forward this one. :spoton:


    If something setups DNS on your adapter, it simply ignores router's DNS.

    I actually use 3 different DNS, one for a router as a backup, one for a computer and a separate one within a browser.

    EDIT: I have just tried it and it is indeed working. I have tried to change DNS manually and via CMD as admin and it prevented it. Well done.

    Router's DNS is used only when DNS is set to auto or to router's DNS address, otherwise it is ignored. It is as simple as that.

    IPv4 DNS from the router is ignored if a custom one is set. For example, I do have 127.0.0.1 as DNS server since I run a local resolver (Unbound).

    My problem is with the IPv6 DNS server. The router DNS server from the Router Advertisement/DHCPv6 overrides my local choice if the DNS Client service is running.

    @Carlos Detweiller : we can add IPv6 protection too , Thanks for your comment

    @pisthai : Forget misspellings errors because non of us native english speakers , we can correct it in 30 seconds , the most important thing is : Does the software is working properly ?

    @CHEF-KOCH: DNS settings of the end devices override DNS settings of the router (Rule)

    Thanks for the all comments

    The first thing to do with your router is change the default admin password.

    We need more devs like you, who create a software, which people want, listen to features requests and fix issues ASAP. :good3: And it is even free. :music2:

    And depending on your router, the root as well. YES, a lot of folks are surprised to discover that some routers also have a root user.

    root / root
    root / admin
    root / blank (older g routers it was blank)

    If you're a smart home user you disabled it altogether. The average home user does not need to remotely connect to their home network from someplace else on earth.

    I do know a lot of Average and Smart Home Users, who using also, beside of the Home Desktop, a Laptop, as well as Remote Desktop for to have access to data at home. For such users, remote control of the Router is sometimes essential. The mainly default Port for to remotely control a Router, is Port 8080. If remote control isn't fully disabled in Router, any hackers (and some Gov agencies like NSA etc.) could easy access what's behind the Router!! As we (maybe) all know, those 'people' using automated systems for to scan the whole Internet!

    Don't need to tell more, I do believe!!

    Thank you for the software ! Kaspersky flagged the download as a malware, but once downloaded and unzipped, scanning by the same Kaspersky did not yield any warnings !

    If you type in a defined set of DNS-Servers in your connection or router they arn't changing. If a Virus or some other maleware changes dns-settings it is already too late to use such a tool (Use saver pornsites!). Only a COMPLETE reformating and reinstalling helps then.

    In my OPINION is this a potential dangerous "tool" which has to run a service as an Administrator from a not so well known coder. If I encounter such a tool on a budys pc I service I would have the strong believe that this "tool" is a virus.

    One questions thought, has anybody checked if this tool sends any "telemetry" (keypresses) home? :g: A clean antivirus scan doesn't mean it's realy completely safe to use. You know most "hacks" are in reality clever people "hacks" rather than breaking into computers from a far.
