Not all the time, but too much of the time (esp. as I work from home), I am getting THIS error message and am unable to access all/most websites:
"Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (www.microsoft.com) is not responding."
The computer also often runs slow just before this problem hits and the above message comes up when I run the troubleshooter.
I use CCleaner and Malwarebytes regularly. (Avira has refused to update since this issue started, too.)
I moved house recently: had landlord's BT service first 10 days with no issues; when transferred over to Plusnet, issues started and have not stopped. May of course be coincidence. Hmm.
In addition to cleaning and anti-malware-ing and stuff, I've cleared the cache, done those things I don't understand but which are recommended which involve releasing and renewing ipconfig and other related cmds, and even carried out a system restore as I wondered if it was related to that problematic batch of windows updates in mid-May.
The system restore got rid of the issue for a good few days, but it's been back again - just the same - for the last few...
Any ideas, please? Thank you for reading.
