TreeWalk DNS for Windows
Posted by deathburger in the wired 13 years ago
TreeWalk is a "free personal use", automatically installed DNS name caching only server which is similar to, but more efficient than using your default ISP's DNS servers. This held true in almost all test cases.

2K/XP or higher required. Or you can dump Winblows entirely if you want things to work right.

I recommend this
ansamancom: I have been using Treewalk for months now in response to my ISP's bad DNS performance. It bypasses overloaded, malfunctioning, or DDoS malfunctioning servers.  
 
Its very simple to use. Install and set your DNS server settings to 127.0.0.1 (loopback).  
 
It queries the root authority servers and caches the results.
deathburger: You Windows users having troubles with Comcast paying attention here? ;p
timbley: I second that. Just installed Treewalk the other day and it is roXX0ring my page load times hugely.
