How to remedy cannot communicate with DNS server.

Specs: Windows 7
I found the simplest solution after doing a complete factory restore and not being able to communicate with DNS server. Many forums I searched suggetsted it was related to Adobe products. I deleted them for a bit with no satisfaction. Finally I remembered something. Most PCs with OEM installs including factory restores includes McAfee security software. Even when turned off it still limits things. So I uninstalled it completely and voila!!!! I now have connectivity.

mmm thank you for the post... Always useful to know a possible fix...

I'm not a fan of McAfee - it has caused more than a few problems in the past for me (and others); and is (or at least it was when last I played with it) a true PIA to update its definitions.

Thank You
Your post may help others who find it.
I once had McAfee way back on a Gateway 2000 with Windows 95 for maybe 3 months, then went with Norton for a number of years along with Spysweeper for additional protection until Norton also became bloatware. About then Webroot who made Spysweeper expanded it to become a full antivirus program so I have stayed with Webroot ever since. Good, strong, efficient, and getting better all of the time.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
