This value disables that automatic cache updated from the DNS root servers. Useful when there is a problem with the root servers, or if you wish to completely control DNS updates.
1. Open Regedit, find the key below.
2. Change the value of "AutoCacheUpdate" = "00000000" to disable, if it doesn't exist create a new DWORD value.
3. Exit RegEdit and Reboot.

Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DNS\Parameters]
Value Name: AutoCacheUpdate
Data Type: REG_DWORD
