Windows Connection Problem

I have been having a problem recently on both my desktop (W7) and laptop (W10), I get the following error or similar.

This site canít be reached
name of site.comís server IP address could not be found.
Try:

Checking the proxy, firewall, and DNS configuration
DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_BAD_CONFIG


At first I thought it might be an anti virus or firewall issue but as it is happening on both machines this can't be.

The message I get can differ slightly depending upon the address I am trying to reach but it's more or less the same. Sometime a reload will get the connection OK straight away but not everytime. In all cases I eventually get the web page up.

Any thoughts please as it's really annoying.
