    Diagnosing an access problem, I decided to temporarily uninstall DNSCrypt 0.0.4 from my Windows 7 system.

    It appears that after uninstalling DNSCrypt, the DNS server on my adapter no longer can be changed from 127.0.0.1

    After the uninstall of DNSCrypt, neither replacing 127.0.0.1 with the OpenDNS addresses (208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220) nor selecting "Obtain DNS server address automatically" now work: After reboot, the adapter as reverted to use 127.0.0.1 as the DNS server address.

    So far, the only way I can restore DNS access is by re-installing DNSCrypt.

    Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions on how DNSCrypt may be installed so that the usual DNS options are restored.

    Are you logged on as administrator when making these changes?

    I am logged in as Administrator.

    I should also say, the problem I am diagnosing is that it appears with DNSCrypt installed, even set to "Fall back to insecure DNS", Quicken online updates fail to complete. Currently, my only workaround is to disconnect the Ethernet cable, and then turn on WiFi connection.

    I'll keep sleuthing and report further.

    Intuit has been known to use "fake" domain names (domains which do not really exist) for their products. Perhaps they have added a new one. See http://forums.opendns.com/comments.php?DiscussionID=3047#Item_24 You may want to open a support ticket on this.

    You should also open a ticket on the DNSCrypt issue, as there isn't much the forum users might suggest here. Just make sure you are using the "real" Admin account, which is disabled by default.
