Could be any one of the hops your connection takes to get to wherever you wanted to go online. Your request doe NOT simply go you- Exede-destination. There can be 30 or more servers between you and your destination, that's why a good AV is essential.

Potentially is the key word here. You need to look at and interpret the firewall log(s) of the product you're using (but appears to be McAffee) to determine that - nothing to do with DNS IMHO. The firewall logs should identify the source and destination.

Hi Josh, I'm sorry you received err or 20063 but this is not  related to our DSN servers as Old Labs mentioned. It may be caused by the program you were running.  If you would like to do some troubleshooting, please contact our technical support team by calling 855-463-9333. Exede Diana

thanks bev,old labs and exede Diana , yea it is mcafee live safe that reported it, I also been getting a good bit of redirects from time to time to maliclious pages but it blocks it. the pc itself is clean, I did use another laptop and it also blocks alot of incomeing connections in the same manner. I believe if it was a program it would be outgoing and incomeing on the connection. seems to be strictly incoming connection , for now I just killed all unneeded processes and uninstalled everything that I do not need or use.
