Windows 7: Having name resolution timed out error

Having name resolution timed out error

Hi, found a nice article by you in windows 7, which i could not find in windows 7. Informative. But i have some doubts , would you clarify please. I do not find any specific topics of tutorials in win 7 by you and hence please excuse me. I do not know, also, how to pm you.
The article i refer is
Display DNS Resolver Cache in Windows 10 Windows 10 Tutorials
My query is, i am having name resolution timed out error.
You say that , if you browse the webpage, then the dns resolver cache would populate with the web pages.But, i find some dns name resolution warnings at the start of the pc. (without my browsing thro internet browsers. i get name resolution timed out about one to four sites, to which i have not browsed.
I tried your command ipconfig /displaydns and get could not resolve dns cache, but using your other commands, to copy to desktop as txt, i succeeded in getting the results. But i am baffled by the no of sites the dns resolver cache contains. It contains new sites, which i have not heard.
How those sites are attempting to get in to my network connections?
Really informative articles about the dns resolver cache and Brink, i look forward to your reply.
Note: i do not find any articles in seven forum about this point.
can i stop unncessary sites from accessing my network at the start?
Of course, i also get name resolution wpad.domain name timed out and at times, name resolution -ldap...timed out.
i was surprised that _ldap is a server related name resolution, but i got in my stand alone computer.
I do not know , bow to Pm to you.
If i raise as a topic, then you may not see it. expecting your reply
PS: i looked at dns client service and it is default set to automatic

Hello jraju, :)

The DNS resolver cache contents are from outgoing connections by your computer or you. They're not incoming.

Do you have programs that check in for updates etc...?

You could also lookup any unknown IP addresses to see where they are from to help ID them.

There are foreign servers, which i never visited. Glad to hear from you the exact clarifications. So, it is not incoming. How to disable all the updates that i would have enabled.
Should i look in to msconfig page or is there any short cut to stop all updates at startup, Should i uncheck all in the startup tab there in msconfig.
wpad.domain.name i checked one belonging to a website, that i did not browse. please say how to disable all updates from outside servers thro command or sighting your tutorial or your ideas.
So, _ldap is also outgoing servers that i enabled or some ips are trying to peep at my network. I will disable all at startup and then try.
On each restart, i get the internet light goes out and then reconnects . is that related to this behaviour

Any programs you have running or startup programs would be a good place to start.

If you like, you could install a free firewall program like Comodo Firewall that would require you to approve each and every outgoing connection.

Hi, I almost stopped all services, but still getting name resolution errors. This error , i could not see in ipconfig /dnsdisplay command. It list all others, but not this, Could you say something more on that.
Name resolution for the name _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.domain.name timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.
Who or which is getting this server as outgoing. Can i find that?
I think, that is related to a server computer settings,which i am not having.
Is that not responsible for ultimate disconnection of internet on every start and restart? pl brink

I'm afraid I have no idea either. Network troubleshooting is not my strong point.

Hi, Brink,
Can i use firefox browser, if i download comodo firewall.
It asks for downloading the dragon browser, which would limit my search web results.
Should i use their browsers to use their firewall? please reply.
Your nice recommendation

You can use any browser with Comodo, but you'll just need to approve it connecting to the Internet when prompted by Comodo.
