    FIX: Use Stubby program


    Hi! I have weird problem.

    This only happens on Windows 10 (all builds expect LTSB 2016 if I remember right). Windows 7 will work fine (My current OS is Windows 10 Pro 1803).
    When I change DNS to encrypted DNS (DNS over TLS?), like Cloudflare's 1.1.1.1 or UncensoredDNS my Internet will work fine for about 2 days then it will stop working. Windows just says that DNS not responding.
    It will work fine again if I change it to my ISP DNS (default) or if I change it to other unencrypted DNS, like dns.watch or Google DNS.

    My ISP is not the problem (I have changed my ISP) and my router is not the problem too (I have changed that too). This issue also don't happen if I use DNSCrypt tool. VPN services works fine if that matters.
    Please someone help me :(

    sounds like your your running some king of encrypted site....maybe is your ISP that dont allow that and forces u to default back.

    Encrypted site? I'm not running any site and I have changed my ISP. This is clearly Windows problem.

    Try to disable DNS Cache.
    Code:
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Dnscache" /v "Start" /t REG_DWORD /d "4" /f

    I'm trying to find why Windows won't let me use DNS servers that use Dns over TLS

    I'm using Cloudflare's DNS without any issues.
