Hi I have experienced the removal of DNS IP addresses from LAN settings on a few XP PC's after adaware & spybot installed , run & removed spyware.

which is quite annoying as have to return to re add DNS
any one experience this ?
or no why it happens?

Nope I doubt that Spybot or Adaware removed them. I cant say I've seen this on any PC I've fixed either. What exactly do u mean by removed? disappeared completely??

It is unusual to need the DNS settings.
Setting your dialup/Lan to "auto" should do the trick.
