"the windows firewall rule HSS DNS Leak rule is blocking your connection".

I have a problem with Windows Firewall not allowing me to connect to the internet. I cannot even connect to online help. I cannot get Windows updates.

It is very frustrating. The error code I see the most is 8024402C

Since trying to upgrade to Windows 10 and rolling it back to Windows 7  (64) (Home) due to not being able to connect to internet. I have this HSS DNS Leak Rule problem.

Thanks for any qualified help that helps me solve this problem.
