I can't get on any website on any browser and I'm getting this DNS lookup error in chrome (though I cannot access the internet at all on any other browser either). 

 

I have tried flushing the DNS, resetting the DNS server in services, what I can only describe as the "8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4" thing and nothing so foar has worked.....

Any help would be much appreciated.

Are you wired or wireless to your router?

Can you access your routers web page?

Can you ping google successfully?

I have the issue with both wireless and ethernet connections and I cannot access Google at all. I can access the router web page.

That would indicate the break in the connection is between your router and the internet.  Call your ISP and have them do a line and modem check.

But other computers can access the internet fine so it is not likely to be a router issue.

That info would have been helpful at the beginning :-)

 

Since it is both wired and wireless you need to make sure you are malware/virus free to start.  Once you have confirmed that review your firewall settings and any other "helpful" programs you may have installed.  You can use msconfig to disable these programs as you test.  I usually start out by disabling all startup programs [except antivirus] to see if I have full internet access again.  Then move on by adding one back at a time until things break again.  That usually narrows it down to what is causing the problem.

I think it may be some kind of virus issue. since this started I can't run any anti malware program apart from windows defender, which seems to have helpfully removed a "virus." It turns out that doing so may have broken malwarebytes as my computer says that DNSAPI.dll is missing (it isn't).
