DNS Stops Working

Windows RT 8.1

Randomly Windows 10 will stop resolving DNS requests. If I go to a dos prompt and try to ping www.msn.com it will hang. If I ping 8.8.8.8 it works fine so the internet connection is not the problem. When I try to ping www.msn.com from another device DNS resolves correctly so the DNS server is not the problem. If I wait 5-10 minutes DNS starts working again or if I manually disconnect/reconnect the network adapter using Network Connections DNS starts resolving again. Any Ideas?

We couldn't connect to the update service. We'll try again later, or you can check now. If it still doesn't work, make sure you're connected to the Internet.

Whilst I am using my pc which has windows 10 os , a pop window named "system32" pops up. I may close the pop up window but it does a period later once again. And it continues to do so. FYI that window contains a lot of system files including the dll files too. How can I stop that window from popping up?

Display color profile (ICC) keeps resetting

Windows RT 8.1

Hi, I have a Asus ROG laptop with Intel HD4600 graphics with Windows 10. I have configured some color profiles for my laptop screen and external monitor (Dell UP2716D). The external monitor is connected via HDMI. The problem is that the color profiles ALWAYS keep reverting to default in the following scenarios: 1) Disconnect and reconnect monitor HDMI cable 2) Change between "Extend" and "Duplicate" screen modes In addition: If i enter "Extend" mode and configure BOTH profiles then all is well until restart or screen mode change "Extend/Duplicate/etc". After laptop restart BOTH lose their color profile. If i enter "Extend" mode and configure the profile ONLY for external monitor then external monitor occasionally remembers the color profile after restart. Although laptop screen profile is now overridden somehow and colors on laptop screen are very overexposed. What could cause these issues? I have tried updating Intel drivers, also got a response from Intel personnel stating that color profiles are managed by Windows. Please advise how to resolve this. Even a workaround would be okay, perhaps a tool that reconfigures th proper color profiles every 5 seconds or so.

email

Windows RT 8.1

When changing a password and receiving the temporary password by email, I cannot save the last page where you enter the temporary password. It disappears and by the time I start over and return to that page, the time is out. How do I save the page asking for a temporary password and bring it up when the email states my temporary password?
