Windows Fix: Can't Select Obtain DNS Servers Automatically

Recently I had an issue where I couldn't set a network adapter's DNS servers to be obtained automatically. Whenever I set it it would get reset to 'Use the following DNS server addresses':

If I did an ipconfig /all it returned the following:
DNS Servers: [list of other DNS servers that should be there]
I found the answer here. Thanks to Brian D Stewart. It was in the DynDNS's Updater, Configuration, Advanced: "Enable Dyn Internet Guide on this PC"

Deselect it and you will be able to set your DNS settings again. I will be contacting DynDNS about this seemingly inexplicable inclusion in their updater.
