I have a problem with one PC which I cleaned with avira, kaspersky, norman and combmofix but found nothing. My problem is that althouth the dns settings are ok pointing to the domain server and google dns when trying to resolve an internal pc or server it resolves it on ip 208.73.211.xx. I formatted the PC and worked fine for 1 day but them started the same problem.

have you performed a Whois search of the DNS IP to see who owns it?

ISP could have changed the DNS server in the second or primary position.


Also, have you performed a DNS flush and reconnected to see if its resolved and the new DNS is the right DNS?


Also, did your provider just go to IPv6?  That can do it


Lastly if your still having issues please go to the "Am I infected" Forum, and let the people there take a hard look at this PC, assuming its just this one could be something
