I periodically get a "A timeout (30000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the DnsProxyAgent service" message in my event log. Sometimes this happens twice in a span of 36 - 39 seconds. What could be causing this? I still have DNS protection running according to dnsptest.webroot.com and I haven't really encountered many issues. I just want to reduce errors in the event viewer.
It turns out the issue that this was caused by was lack of sufficient resources. The computers I had been seeing this on had very low amount of memory available and a lot of CPU activity. Errors occurred even when uninstalling the DNS protection agent via Webroot portal. At any given time with a regular workload, I have an average of 5 MB of memory free not in cache so it explains why this error was occurring I haven't tried upgrading my ram yet, but this error will most likely go away once I get more memory or assign more space for the pagefile (I'm on an SSD so disk write speed isn't too big of a concern.).View original
