    There is an easy way to avoid DNC-cache poisoning, turn off the DNS-cache…
    Start “Services”, scroll down to “DNS Client”, doubleclick on it, set start-up type to “Disabled”.
    If you are unsure if this will cause any problems, then set start-up type to”Manual” first,
    use your computer normally for a few days / weeks, then start “Services” and check if DNS-cache is active.
    If not, then it should be safe to disable it.

    Update: If you set start-up type to “Manual” first, click on “Stop” to kill the process, or reboot.
    Otherwise you will not see if its starts because it´s already running….
