How do i get out of dns mode on my imac home computer?


Mac OS X v10.5 or later:
  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
  2. From the View menu, choose Network.
  3. Click the interface you use to connect to the Internet, such as AirPort or Built-in Ethernet.
  4. If you use Built-in Ethernet: Type your DNS address(es) in the DNS Server field. If you have more than one, separate them with a comma.
    If you use AirPort, click Advanced, then click the DNS tab. For each server, click the "+" button under DNS Servers and enter the address provided by your ISP or network admin. Click OK when done.
  5. Click Apply.
Mac OS X v10.4 or earlier:
  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
  2. From the View menu, choose Network.
  3. From the Show menu, choose the interface you use to connect to the Internet.
  4. Click the TCP/IP tab.
  5. Type your DNS address in the Domain Name Servers field. If you have more than one, press Return at the end of each to put the next address on a new line.
  6. Click Apply Now.

Changing networks
You may experience a delay with the first connection after changing networks on a portable Mac. For example, you might use a MacBook at home with Wi-Fi, then take it to work or school and use an Ethernet connection. By default, Mac OS X uses one set of Internet preferences (known as a "location") named Automatic that will search your computer's modem, Ethernet, and AirPort interfaces until it finds the one that is connected to the Internet. You may experience a delay while your computer determines which network it is on. This can be easily differentiated from a DNS issue by creating a location that only contains one network interface. For more information, see Using network locations in Mac OS X.
If issues continue after trying the above steps, consider removing any manually-entered DNS addresses from the Network preferences pane. Select the address, then click the minus ("-") button. Note that dimmed addresses cannot be removed.

I am unable to do a google search?


Internet Explorer comes preinstalled on most Windows-based computer systems.
If you use Internet Explorer, you may run into the issue where the Internet browser does not open for some reason when you attempt to access it.
Usually that's caused by a minor flaw in your computer, one you can correct without too much effort or time.

Run the anti-virus software you have on your computer and perform a full system scan. Sometimes if a virus or malware infects your computer, it blocks Internet Explorer from launching.
Once the scan has finished, remove any bugs or infections your software found on your computer and attempt to relaunch Internet Explorer.
Shut down the computer and restart it.
Sometimes just restarting the computer can correct any error you are having.

Click the "Start" button, followed by "Control Panel."
The Control Panel window will load with a variety of system icons. Select "System."

Select "System Update" and allow your computer to connect to the Internet (no browser is required) and Windows tells you if any updates for your system are available.
Install these updates and your issues with Internet Explorer may disappear.

Launch a different web browser (such as Firefox or Safari). Using one of these browsers, you can usually access the Internet; you could try to download an updated version of Internet Explorer to correct the older version that's not loading.

Turn Off Google's Safe Search
Google's preference page allows users to customize settings and options that help utilize searches to the viewer's needs.
One of those options is Google's filtering tool.
This tool contains three filtering options that will filter your results completely, with moderate safety, or it will not filter the search results at all.
Google's filtering preferences also filter and determine what kind of keywords and keyword phrases appear in the Google search bar.

Click on "Preferences" on the left side of the search bar of the Google Home Page.
You will be directed to Google's "Preferences" page.
Scroll down until you locate the "Safe Search Filtering" section of the page.
You will see three safe search options: "Use Strict Filtering," "Use Moderate Filtering," and "Do Not Filter My Search Results."
Click the "Do Not Filter My Search Results" option to check the option and click the "Save Preferences" button to save your changes.
