    I have DELL desktop PC with Windows 7 64 bit. Once i have used HotSpot Shield for few days. After uninstalling the HotSpot, I am unable to change TCP/IP and DNS servers settings. My network adaptor is set up to default (automatically obtain ip address).

    Each time when i tried to change the dns servers settings, it requires a reboot (which is not happened with other PCs). and after reboot, its again set up to obtain ip and dns servers settings automatically.

    I have Avira FREE antivirus and its not showing any virus.
    I have cleaned my PC using Malwarebytes, some virus detected and removed but in vain.

    I am still unable to change my Network Adaptor's dns servers settings. Any advise please?

    You say the problem occurred with the install/uninstall of HotSpot. I would to a system restore to right before you installed HotSpot in the first place. Just type system restore into the search bar of the icon in the bottom left hand corner. If you need more restore points, choose the option in the bottom left area that says show more restore points.
